BALTIMORE GAS & ELECTRIC COMPANY GIVES CONSERVATION ACHIEVEMENT AWARD AND REBATE TO LEGAL AID BUREAU

 BALTIMORE GAS & ELECTRIC COMPANY GIVES CONSERVATION
 ACHIEVEMENT AWARD AND REBATE TO LEGAL AID BUREAU
 BALTIMORE, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. (NYSE: BGE) said today it plans to present its "Conserve 2000" Conservation Achievement Award and a rebate check for $29,963 to representatives of the Legal Aid Bureau, Inc., for exceptional energy- saving measures in the design and construction of the organization's new central office at 500 E. Lexington St. in downtown Baltimore.
 The awards will be presented Tuesday, Sept. 8, at 10 a.m. in the new building.
 The Legal Aid Building, developed by Struever Bros., Eccles & Rouse and designed by the architectural firm of Hord Coplan and Macht, Inc., is the first building to receive this award under BG&E's Comprehensive Commercial Construction Program. This new program encourages the design of energy efficiency into new commercial facilities by providing incentives to architects, engineers and developers.
 The Legal Aid Building was designed with various technologies and conservation measures that will defer an estimated 56 kilowatts through efficient lighting and insulation. That's enough to reduce the organization's energy bills by approximately $11,000 annually. For example, the exterior walls are insulated with a sprayed-on cellulose material that is a by-product of recycled newspaper. This is the first time this high-efficiency insulation has been used in this region.
 "We saw the opportunity to do the right thing for the environment -- with measurable gain rather than sacrifice on our part," said Legal Aid Executive Director Charles Dorsey. The Legal Aid Bureau is a not-for- profit organization that provides civil legal representation to Maryland residents who cannot afford these services.
 Conserve 2000 is BG&E's comprehensive plan to dramatically alter current and future demand for energy in ways that benefit the customer and the environment and provide its customers with environmentally clean and affordable power now and in the 21st century. As of mid-1992, all Conserve 2000 programs combined have deferred more than 350 megawatts during the summer peak period. This compares to the capacity needed to supply more than 87,000 homes.
