New Lower Electric Rates Take Effect for Delaware Customers

NEWARK, Del. - Customers will see slightly lower monthly electric bills starting today as the new Standard Offer Service (SOS) rates take effect for Delmarva Power's Delaware residential customers.

A typical customer who uses about 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per month will see their overall bill decrease around $2.48 or about 1.7 percent. The decrease stems from our current business practices and contract procurements over a three year period.

Charges for SOS pay for the electricity customers use and equal about two-thirds of a customer's bill.
