The PSC requires Pepco, and every Electric Distribution Company (EDC) to provide “SOS Pricing Information” for use by Maryland consumers to compare Pepco prices with the prices of other suppliers and select the best value.
To calculate your potential annual savings, determine the difference between Pepco's weighted average price of SOS electricity and the similar price of other Electric Generation Suppliers participating in the Energy Choice Program by subtracting one from the other. If the supplier’s price is less than Pepco’s, you’ll save money. Multiply that difference by your average monthly kilowatt-hour (kWh) usage to determine your average monthly and annual savings.
You may be able to buy cleaner power and possibly help protect the environment. By law, all electricity suppliers must tell you how they generate their electricity (nuclear, natural gas, oil, solar, etc.), what types of air emissions they produce and their energy efficiency.
If you choose a new supplier, making the change is easy. Return the signed, completed agreement to the supplier you have selected. It is then up to your new supplier and Pepco to make the switch.
If you have completed your assessment and have decided to stay with Pepco as your Electric Generation Supplier, then your work is done. You need not complete or return the enrollment form.
