Maryland is a deregulated energy company state. What that means, apparently, is that while Pepco is our energy distributor, they are not required to be our energy generator. I happened to find this out yesterday, and another authorized distributor is Clean Currents. They offer 50 or 100% wind-generated power and a 1 or 2 year price locked contract. And get this - the price per kilowatt hour is less than Pepco's rates! We just signed up for the 50% wind power generation on a 2-year price lock and it's nearly 20% less than what we're currently paying for generation & transmission. Cheaper AND more environmentally sound? Yes please!

If you live in MD, DC, or PA you should check them out! I don't think enough people know about this aspect of their power bill.
