As Kevin Klages recently mentioned on this blog, every time a UWCM supporter, donor or employee signs up for a Constellation Electric residential electricity plan, Constellation Electric will make a contribution to 2-1-1 Maryland at United Way of Central Maryland. This truly is an incredible opportunity for all of us in the community. UWCM supporters can lock in a fixed residential electricity price from Constellation Electric that is up to 7% lower than BGE’s current weighted average price of Standard Offer Service electricity.* In addition, available plans include the opportunity to match 100 percent of electricity usage with clean, wind power products, utilize budget billing and participate in BGE’s PeakRewardsSM Program.
At the end of the day, this opportunity is a win-win. Every time someone signs up for a Constellation Electric fixed price plan with the UWCM promo code (UWCM211C), he or she can save and Constellation Electric will make a contribution to UWCM’s 2-1-1 call center.
“As a program, we need help to fund our services in order to meet the needs in the community,” says Valerie Wethered, Supervisor of 2-1-1 Maryland at United Way of Central Maryland. To hear more from Valerie (who has served our community for 21 years via 2-1-1) and get a behind-the-scenes glance into 2-1-1, watch the short video.
If you’d like to choose one of Constellation Electric’s plans, go here and verify that the UWCM211C organization code offer appears on the form as you get started (if not, just paste it in). If you prefer to sign up over the phone, call 1-888-219-4239 and mention the UWCM211C promo code.
