Understanding Your PEPCO Electricity Bill
There are two separate types of charges on your PEPCO electric bill, delivery charges, and supply charges. With Energy Choice, you can take control of your electricity supply charges by switching electricity providers.
PEPCO Delivery Charges
Delivery charges generally go to PEPCO and are there to support the delivery of your electricity. These charges do not change when you switch electricity providers since the Maryland Public Service Commission sets them for each utility in the state.
Supply charges are charges for the electricity that you use. The cost for your energy supply is what changes when you switch electricity providers. You can compare electricity plans by using the electricity supply rate on your bill.
