Electricity

A little over a decade ago the District of Columbia deregulated electric utilities, allowing homeowners to make their own choice when it comes to choosing their electricity supplier. Electricity suppliers purchase the energy from electricity distributors. PEPCO is the only distributor of electricity in the District of Columbia. They are also the largest retail supplier.

Browse the District of Columbia’s list of consumer contacts for approved electricity suppliers, which includes PEPCO.

Natural Gas

Around the same time DC deregulated the electric utility, the gas utility was also deregulated. Homeowners may choose to purchase gas through Washington Gas (formerly Washington Gas Light Co.), the local utility distributor, or choose to their own natural gas supplier.

The District’s Public Service Commission maintains a list of approved natural gas suppliers.

Water Authority

DC Water (formerly the DC Water & Sewer Authority) services an area of roughly 725 square miles, providing water & sewer services to more than 600,000 residents. Water comes from Great Falls on the Potomac River and is treated at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Washington Aqueduct. It is then sold to DC Water for distribution.
