Pepco has launched a consumer awareness campaign, Pepco Answers, to provide information to its Maryland customers on electricity competition, which begins in Maryland next year. Through a variety of materials and sources Pepco Answers tells customers:
" 'Customer choice' for electricity will offer consumers the best opportunity to cut their costs and shop for new products and services that suit their particular needs," said Bob Grantley, Group Vice President of Pepco. "Consumers are getting the best of the old and the new-lower costs and Pepco's delivery and reliability systems."
Grantley said that Pepco is planning to sell its power plants and specialize in its delivery business, pending regulatory approval. In addition, the 103-year old electric company will be selling a variety of new telecommunications and energy services offered by its family of subsidiaries. Pepco will buy energy from the bulk wholesale market to serve those customers who choose to stay with Pepco as their supplier.
Pepco Answers offers consumers concise information through the company's web page, www.pepco.com, free brochures, bill inserts, newsletters, advertising and the company's 24-hour Customer Call Center.
