Delmarva Power Natural Gas Rate Adjustment

NEWARK, Del. - Recently, The Delaware Public Service Commission (Commission) gave Delmarva Power approval to recover fifty percent of the costs related to natural gas advanced metering infrastructure. 

Natural Gas advanced metering infrastructure allows customers to view and manage their natural gas energy use online through My Account.  Customers can sign up for My Account at or through our Delmarva Power Self-Service app.

The change will result in an overall monthly bill increase of $0.37 or about 0.3 percent for residential customers who use 120 CCF of natural gas per month during the heating season.

The recovery on this asset was previously approved by the Commission in 2013, on a phase-in basis, as part of Delmarva's Gas Base Rate Case.  Recovery was conditioned upon Delmarva meeting certain cost benefit analyses.  The billing change is expected to go into effect during the July 2014 billing cycle.

Delmarva Power encourages customers to visit for information on saving energy and money in their home or business. The company also offers customers Budget Billing, a fixed payment plan based on the customer's 12-month average bill. Customers can enroll online or by calling 1-800-375-7117.
