The state’s utility ratepayer advocate criticized Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.’s proposal to raise delivery rates over the next three years as incentive for the utility to “shoot for the moon with massive spending proposals.” Releasing a consumer guide to show the effect of BGE’s rate hikes, People’s Counsel David S.
