Maryland is a deregulated electric utility market offering energy companies the ability to come in and sell to their citizens. Electricity companies like Ambit Energy Texas, TXU Energy from Texas, Gexa Energy from Florida, Spark Energy from Texas, and several other large out of state brands now sell electricity in Maryland.
The large old monopoly electricity companies in Maryland like Baltimore Gas and Electric and PEPCO still sell electricity service to residential and business customers but they are now faced with additional competition.
BG&E and Pepco however can now enter other markets in Maryland and sell electricity service outside their service territory. What all of this means is cheaper electricity prices as new and better rate plans and efficiencies develop when providers out do each other to win your business.
