For Immediate Release


Electrical Supply Rate Decrease set for DPL DE Customers

NEWARK, Del. (May 31, 2016) - On June 1, 2016, customers will experience changes to their monthly electric bill.  The new Standard Offer Service (SOS) Rates will take effect for Delmarva Power Delaware's residential customers. A typical customer who uses about 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per month will see their overall bill decrease around $6.80 or about 4.6 percent. Charges for SOS pay for the electricity you use and equal about two-thirds of your bill. The decrease stems from our current business practices and contract procurements over a three year period and is $4.32 better than last year's decrease of $2.48.
