About Potomac Edison Power Company
Potomac Edison is one of 10 companies under FirstEnergy Corp, which serves the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic. The Potomac Edison evolved from Allegheny Energy, an energy utility that merged with FirstEnergy in 2011. Since then, they have grown to over 400,000 people in Maryland and West Virginia.
The energy utility uses a portion of FirstEnergy’s 269,000 miles of power lines to deliver safe and stable energy to homes and businesses in cities and towns in Maryland.
Utilities and Suppliers: What's the Difference?
In Maryland’s energy market, you count on suppliers and utilities to keep your home or business powered. Because of this, suppliers compete for market share and adjust their rates to the current market. Consumers can commit to a supplier in the service area in order to give them some control over the rate they pay.
Potomac Edison sends the energy that suppliers provide through their power lines. While you can pick your supplier, you cannot pick your utility. So when you have an outage or power line issue, you can contact your utility to resolve to the problem.
Potomac Edison and other utilities provide a Price to Compare (PTC) on their bills. Their price changes often and because of this, it is hard to budget for your energy costs. When you shop for a supplier, you can use this rate to see which price is best in the market. Typically, utility price to compare rates are a good indicator of the current energy market.
