What Is Energy Choice?

Energy Choice allows you to choose your electricity provider, which is the company that supplies the electricity you use.

If you have never switched electricity providers, your utility provider—most likely BGE if you live in Columbia—is your default electricity provider. Your utility provider owns and operates the infrastructure that delivers electricity to your home.

There are many reasons to take advantage of Energy Choice:

  • Save on your electricity supply by switching to a provider with a lower rate.
  • Lock in a low fixed rate that will ensure no surprise rate hikes on your electricity supply.
  • Support clean energy with a renewable electricity plan.

No matter your reason, ElectricityRates.com’s simple and secure platform makes the switching process a breeze.

Switching Columbia Electricity Plans In Three Steps

First, enter your ZIP Code at the top of this page. ElectricityRates.com will then present you with a list of electricity plans available to you.

Second, compare electricity plans. The two most important factors are each plan’s electricity supply rate and plan length. You can find your current electricity supply rate on your most recent electricity bill.

Since plans on ElectricityRates.com are fixed-rate plans, the advertised electricity rate will be locked in for the duration of the plan. However, many fixed-rate plans have termination fees if the plan is canceled before the end of the contract, so keep that in mind. You can find all this information and more in the Plan Details section under any plan.

Third, when you find the plan you like, select the plan to switch providers. 

After you switch, your new provider will take over within one to two billing cycles. BGE will still deliver electricity to your home and bill you, so there are no interruptions in your electricity service.

100% Renewable Energy In Columbia

Columbia, Maryland is one of the only cities in the US to source 100% of its electricity from renewable resources. This is a truly spectacular feat that makes the city a clean energy leader in the US.

Thankfully, if you switch providers in Columbia, you don’t have to give up renewable energy. Many plans on ElectricityRates.com are renewable electricity plans.

When you choose a renewable energy plan, the money you spend at the end of each month purchases renewable energy credits. These credits support renewable energy generators and offset your electricity use by putting more renewably generated electricity into the grid.
