For Immediate Release
Company encourages customers to take steps to manage energy use
and seek energy bill assistance if needed
WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. 21, 2022) — Winter is officially here. As even colder temperatures can be expected through the coming months, leading to increased energy usage and potentially higher bills, Pepco is committed to helping all customers use less energy by providing energy efficiency information to help keep bills as low as possible this winter season. The company also continues to encourage customers to take advantage of millions of dollars in energy assistance available across the District of Columbia and Maryland.
Pepco recognizes customers may use more energy than expected as temperatures get colder, and some continue with a hybrid or remote work schedule. Pepco offers the following tips to help reduce energy use and costs:
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
Customers can also manage their bill through My Account, Pepco's online energy management tool that shows how much energy a customer is using. The bill-to-date feature lets customers know what the bill costs are at any time during the month, and provides tips based on their energy-saving goals. This tool is available for customers at pepco.com/MyAccount.
Pepco is committed to helping to keep every customer connected by offering payment arrangements as well as programs that can help customers manage their monthly energy bill, including Budget Billing, which averages payments over a 12-month period. The company also offers energy efficiency programs and energy-saving information to help customers reduce their energy usage. Information regarding these programs can be found at pepco.com/WaysToSave.
The company is continuing to connect customers who may be facing financial challenges with available energy assistance resources. In addition to Pepco's programs, the company works with community and government partners to get funding into the hands of those customers who need it most to help meet their energy needs. Customers can visit pepco.com/EnergyAssistance or call 202-833-7500 to learn more about energy assistance programs and services.
