MAYS LANDING, NJ Good news comes from Atlantic City Electric this week. On Moneday the company announced that their  customers this month and into May will see a  $113.16 credit on their monthly bill,.  The company claims that this will be the first of many benefits they will receive as part of the merger completed last month between Exelon and Pepco Holdings, Inc., the parent company of Atlantic City Electric.

The credits will be automatically applied to each household’s bill as part of a broader package of benefits that will make energy more affordable for Atlantic City Electric customers as a direct result of the merger. The credits are applied to the bill balance and will be reflected on each customer’s bill.

“This is only the start of the benefits customers will see as a result of the merger,” said Vincent Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. “In addition to financial benefits to customers such as this one, the merger includes commitments to improve service and reliability for everyone as well as a commitment to sustain our level of giving to non-profits for the next 10 years,” Maione added.
