Delmarva Power’s customers in Delaware getting break on natural gas costs, and perhaps a refund from electric rate hike

Delmarva Power’s 138,000 natural gas customers in Delaware can expect their second rate decrease this year in November, as cold weather begins approaching.

In addition, the utility’s 324,000 electric customers — which includes gas users — will likely get a refund early next from an electric distribution increase that took effect in July.

That’s the expected net effect of recent pricing moves by Delaware’s dominant power utility, whose proposals get reviewed by the state’s Public Service Commission (PSC), which has the final say on what customers pay.

The bottom line is that an average residential customer that uses both natural gas and electric will pay roughly $10 less monthly.
