Maryland Energy Choice
For many years, Pepco was the sole electricity supplier in suburban Maryland and Washington, D.C. We generated electricity and delivered it to you at rates set by regulatory commissions. In 2000, Pepco’s electricity market changed. We no longer generate our own electric power, and competing electricity suppliers are allowed to market their electric supply to Maryland customers.

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.
