Electricity Options for Washington, D.C. Residents
Products & Services Available in the District of Columbia
Just like opting for a new phone or TV service, DC residents can select a new electric supplier. Electric Choice gives residents the chance to consider a plan that more closely meets their energy needs and better serves their household budget. By choosing a different pricing option it provides residents with an additional opportunity for managing your electricity costs.
DC residents are not required to switch to Constellation Energy and have the option of remaining a customer of their current utility. To be eligible for our home electric services in DC, customers must live in the (PEPCO) utility service territory.
Residential electricity customers can obtain long term fixed price assurance and may be able to save on electricity prices by choosing Constellation Energy. Please compare our price to your current and utility offers. Get Started
Constellation provides a solar leasing program with Astrum Solar, offering the opportunity to switch to solar energy for little-to-no-money down for a 20-year term.
Customers can pay as little as $0 to get started and then pay monthly for their solar power (with our Low Upfront Lease) or pay in advance for their solar power and save even more each month on their electricity costs (with our One Pay Plan). Get Started on Astrum's Website
