BG&E OPENS NATURAL GAS VEHICLE REFUELING STATION IN TIMONIUM

 BG&E OPENS NATURAL GAS VEHICLE REFUELING STATION IN TIMONIUM
 BALTIMORE, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. (NYSE: BGE) today opened a natural gas vehicle (NGV) refueling station at the utility's Timonium complex on Greenspring Drive.
 The station is the second of six planned to be built on BG&E property in central Maryland over the next 15 months. Currently, BG&E operates an NGV refueling station at its transportation facility in Woodlawn, and is expected to open stations in South Baltimore and Glen Burnie by the end of 1992. NGV stations in the western and eastern sections of BG&E's service territory are planned for 1993.
 The new Timonium station, which features two quick-fill pumps that resemble regular gasoline pumps, will provide fuel to BG&E's expanding fleet of customer service vans powered by natural gas. BG&E has about 100 such vans right now, and plans to replace the entire fleet of 500 with dedicated natural gas vehicles within five years.
 BG&E officials said the key to making natural gas a viable alternative fuel is the development of a fueling infrastructure. The utility is currently working with fleet owners to make the BG&E stations available for their use or, if feasible, making fueling stations available on their property. Such is the case with the state of Maryland, where refueling stations were built on state property at BWI Airport and in Annapolis, respectively.
 As for the general public, BG&E is currently holding discussions with several oil companies about installation of natural gas pumps at commercial gasoline stations in central Maryland.
 Fleet owners interested in learning more about natural gas vehicles can call BG&E's Marketing & Energy Services Department at 800-786-2000.
