• Complying with Renewable Portfolio Standards

  • Atlantic City Electric, Delmarva Power and Pepco operate in jurisdictions that have state renewable portfolio standards (RPS), which mandate that the electricity supply contain a specified percentage of renewable energy that increases over time. The required percentages are scheduled to increase significantly over the next several years in every jurisdiction where PHI companies operate. All PHI utilities are responsible for procuring electricity generated from external suppliers. These supplier contracts must account for the RPS programs for the state in which the power is being distributed.

    PHI's utilities are responding by procuring energy from eligible renewable resources and purchasing renewable energy credits in accordance with the RPS programs enacted by the states in which we operate.

    Each PHI utility meets compliance with state RPS programs. PHI utilities' electricity delivery fuel mix consisted of the following percentages of renewable energy resources:

    • 7.7 percent of Atlantic City Electric's electricity deliveries in New Jersey during the energy year June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013
    • 7.3 percent of Delmarva Power's electricity deliveries in Delaware during the energy year June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013
    • 6.6 percent of Pepco's electricity deliveries in Maryland between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013
    • 4.8 percent of Delmarva Power's electricity deliveries in Maryland from July 1, 2012, through June 30, 2013
    • 5.4 percent of Pepco's electricity deliveries in the District of Columbia from January 1 to June 30, 2013 

    Note: Electric delivery fuel mix percentages are based on the PJM system mix, which is not equivalent to the state RPS percentages.
