About Energy Choice in Maryland
Residents and businesses in most areas of Maryland have had energy choice since 1999! If you live in Maryland and currently buy your home’s electricity supply from Baltimore Gas & Electric or PEPCO directly, you may be able to save on your monthly electric energy costs by switching to a new home energy supplier, like North American Power.

How Energy Choice Works in Maryland?
Your home electric bill consists of two parts – delivery service and energy supply. Delivery service is the poles and wires that bring electricity to your home. The energy supply portion of your bill is for the electricity you use in your home. Who supplies that energy is up to you, the customer. While each utility’s home electric bill is different, about half of the total bill is for delivery and the rest is for the electricity you use.
Thanks to energy deregulation consumers can switch from their utility to a retail energy supplier, like North American Power that is buying electricity on the wholesale energy market.
Choosing us means you can be informed about how much you’re paying for electricity, not just settling for the rate your electric utility is offering you. Just like you shop around for the best cable or mobile service plan, you can shop around for your home’s electric supply!
Don’t worry, no matter who you choose to supply your energy, your Maryland electric utility company is still responsible for maintaining the electric grid, delivering electricity to homes and handling all service and outage problems.
