Constellation Electric recently collaborated with the United Way of Central Maryland (UWCM) to provide its supporters with the opportunity to save on their electric bills while helping UWCM provide essential human services throughout the region. Every time a UWCM supporter signs up for a Constellation Electric fixed price plan, he or she can save up to 7 percent (compared to BGE’s current weighted average price of Standard Offer Service electricity), and Constellation Electric will make a contribution to 2-1-1 Maryland at United Way of Central Maryland.
When a Maryland resident dials 2-1-1, UWCM’s call center is there to answer the call for help. 2-1-1 staff have a wealth of information to address a variety of health and human service issues at their fingertips, allowing them to help callers get connected to the help they need.
Recently, my colleagues popped in to see Mark Furst, President & CEO of United Way of Central Maryland, to ask him about how the opportunity might provide long-term value to UWCM supporters and 2-1-1. Watch the video above to see what he had to say.
If you’d like to choose one of Constellation Electric’s plans, go here. Make sure that the UWCM211C organization code offer appears on the form as you get started. To sign up by phone, call 1-888-219-4239 and be sure to mention the UWCM211C promo code.
