Atlantic City Electric Supports Energy Choice
Whether you choose to stay with Atlantic City Electric as your electricity supplier, or choose another supplier, we will continue to provide reliable energy delivery and service.
The Choice Is Yours
The restructuring of the electric utility industry allows you to select the electricity supplier that fits your needs. If you don't choose a supplier, Atlantic City Electric buys electricity for you and charges you according to rates approved by the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities. This is called "Basic Generation Service" (BGS), and the cost for this appears under the "Supply Charges" in the Electric Delivery Charges portion of your bill (customer bills are broken down to indicate charges for "supply," the actual electricity, and "delivery," the process of getting that electricity to end users). Atlantic City Electric continues to deliver the electricity to all customers whether or not they choose another supplier.
