Electronic option ends monthly paper statement
NEWARK , Del. - Beginning this month, Delmarva Power will offer an electronic bill and payment option - called "Green Bill" - to its more than 500,000 customers in Delaware and on Maryland's Eastern Shore.
With Green Bill, customers will be able to sign up through the My Account page located on the Web site at www.delmarva.com. Through this initiative, customers can elect to stop receiving paper bills. Green Bill customers will automatically receive a monthly e-mail stating that their bill is ready to be viewed and paid online. It also will show the amount due and the due date. Another feature of Green Bill allows customers to configure their accounts to make an automated recurring payment.
Signing up for the option will be strictly voluntary. For customers to participate, they must check a box to stop their regular paper bill from being mailed. Other service-related notices will continue with a paper mailing to the customer.
"This environmentally-friendly option will help the company and its customers work together to conserve paper, which helps protect and preserve natural resources," said Gary Stockbridge, Delmarva Power Regional President . "We think our customers will find that paperless billing is a hassle-free option that has been made easy via our Web site."
Delmarva Power, a public utility owned by Pepco Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: POM), provides safe and reliable energy to more than 500,000 electric delivery customers in Delaware and Maryland and over 121,000 natural gas delivery customers in northern Delaware.
