    Apr 18, 2016

    NEWARK, DE (April 18, 2016) - Delmarva Power electric and gas customers this month and into May will see a $122.64 and $49.95 credit respectively on their monthly bill, the first of many benefits they will receive as part of the merger completed last month between Exelon and Pepco Holdings, Inc, the parent company of Delmarva Power.

    The credits will be automatically applied to each household’s bill as part of a broader package of benefits that will make energy more affordable for Delmarva Power customers in Delaware as a direct result of the merger. The credits are applied to the bill balance and will be reflected on each customer’s bill.     

    “This is only the beginning of the many benefits resulting from our merger with Exelon,” said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power region president.  “Beyond the bill credit, there are financial, environmental, and reliability benefits as well as additional assistance programs for those most in need and guaranteed ongoing philanthropic contributions for the next 10 years in the communities we serve.”

    Exelon and Pepco Holdings completed their merger transaction on March 23, following the approval of the merger by the Public Service Commission of the District of Columbia. The merger has brought together Exelon’s three electric and gas utilities — BGE, ComEd and PECO — and Pepco Holdings’ three electric and gas utilities — Atlantic City Electric, Delmarva Power and Pepco — to create the leading mid-Atlantic electric and gas utility company.
