The best way to get informed is to check out the retail choice page on the DC Commission’s website. Start here: http://www.dcpsc.org/educate/customer_choice.asp
For electric, Pepco will be still be your distribution provider, but you can choose your generation provider. Each provider offers different types of services. Some offer contracts at a specific contract rate for a specific term. Others offer varying rates over the term, some offer a specific amount of renewable energy. The DC Commission’s website lists the “Price to Compare”, which is the average generation and transmission price per kilowatt-hour. The Commission does not set the Price to Compare for alternative suppliers and PEPCO. http://www.dcpsc.org/Electric/Electric_FAQ.asp#A1
