Atlantic City Electric Company Key Developments

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities Approves Settlement Agreement with Atlantic City Electric Co

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities approved a settlement agreement with Exelon Corp. subsidiary Atlantic City Electric Co. to increase its base electric rates by 3.89% from current rates set in 2014. The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities has approved a 3.89% rate increase for Exelon Corp. subsidiary Atlantic City Electric Co. to support the utility's investments in its electric distribution system and to pay off storm costs. The higher rates take effect immediately and will result in additional base revenues of $45 million for the utility. Atlantic City's original application in March would have resulted in a 6.3% increase, but the utility agreed to the lower increase in a settlement with ratepayer advocates and board staff. Under the new rates, a typical residential customer, using 750 kWh of electricity per month, would see a monthly bill increase of about $5.33, while larger residential customers using about 1,000 kWh per month would see an increase of roughly $7.05 per month, the utility said in a release.
