Price to Compare

To calculate your potential savings, determine the difference between Delmarva Power's "Price to Compare" and the price of Alternate Electric Suppliers participating in the Energy Choice Program by subtracting one from the other. If the supplier’s price is less than the "Price to Compare", you’ll save money. Multiply that difference by your average monthly kilowatt-hour (kWh) usage to determine your average monthly and annual savings.

1. Look at the "Price to Compare" chart to determine your correct rate. (cents per kWh)
