Residential Customers Began Receiving Credit May 1
Residential customers with active gas and/or electric distribution accounts on May 1, 2012 are receiving a rate credit in the amount of $100. The credit is a result of the Maryland Public Service Commission’s review and approval of the merger of Constellation Energy and Exelon, which was completed on March 12, 2012.
Customers do not need to take any action to receive the rate credit. BGE automatically applies the credit for all residential customers with active account on May 1. Residential customers receiving gas and/or electric distribution service from BGE under a single account number receive a single $100 rate credit.
The credit is applied to the entire bill and applies to the various charges in the same way as any other payment. If a customer’s bill is less than $100, the unused portion of the Exelon Rate Credit will carry over to reduce future bills. Customers who left the service territory before incurring $100 of electricity or gas charges will not be issued cash refunds.
Residential customers will see the Exelon Rate Credit in the “Summary” section of their BGE bill, along with more information in the “Important Information About Your Bill” section.
