District of Columbia Customer Choice
Electricity competition began in the District of Columbia in February 2005, giving you the opportunity to choose the company that provides your electricity. As your local utility, Pepco continues delivering electricity safely and reliably to your home or business, regardless of which electricity supplier you choose. And Pepco still maintains the power lines and responds to your emergency and routine service calls, just as before.
Recognizing that you may have questions, Pepco wants to help you navigate through the world of customer choice - also referred to as electricity deregulation or competition.
