Understanding Your BGE Electric Bill

There are four specific aspects of your electric bill that you should be familiar with.

Electric Delivery vs Supply

On the first page of your BGE bill, you will see graphs depicting what percentage of your total bill went towards thedelivery of your electricity vs. the supply of your electricity.

  • BGE Electric Delivery These charges support the delivery of electricity to your home.
  • Electric Supply These charges are for the electricity you used.

The important thing to understand about this section is that switching electricity providers only affects the supply portion of your bill. Delivery rates are the same no matter your electric provider.

Your Electric Choice ID Number

Directly to the right of the graph that depicts how much of your bill went to electric delivery vs supply, you will find your Electric Choice ID number. If you decide to switch electricity providers, you will need this number to make the switch.
