Maryland electricity company vs. supplier
Maryland electricity is distributed by your local utility. Baltimore Gas and Electric (BG&E) is the electric utility for the Baltimore area. Although BG&E may be your utility, consumers can choose an alternative company for their electricity supply. These suppliers may offer competitive supply rates and packages for their customers.
Baltimore electric rates: Know your options
Baltimore electricity and natural gas supply companies offer a variety of plans to give consumers options. Since the utility still owns the power lines and pipelines, it remains responsible for the transmission of electricity. If you experience a power outage or gas leak, contact your utility company as soon as possible.
Suppliers often offer fixed-rate or variable-rate supply plans. With fixed-rate supply plans, the rate per energy unit stays the same throughout your contract, giving customers the ability to protect their supply rate. Some Baltimore energy suppliers may offer a variable-rate supply plan which changes along with the energy market price, meaning if the market price decreases or increases, your supply rate will also decrease or increase.
