Why do Maryland residents choose AEP Energy?

AEP Energy is an electricity provider that serves thousands of customers in Maryland. Read what some of our customers have to say about their experience.


I chose AEP Energy because their rates are very competitive, their plans did NOT include an early termination fee and their enrollment reps provided accurate information about their plans. Their reps also offered helpful suggestions to make the enrollment process seamless. So far, I am very impressed with AEP Energy.

Michael A. Baltimore, MD

Great experience with AEP Energy. I like their low rates, no cancellation fees and monthly rewards for being a member. Also, a nice website for re-enrollment.

Vivek C. Ellicott, MD

Signing up for service was easy and fast. Follow up was exceptional, including confirmation that all information was received and correct. This has been an issue with other suppliers in the last. Great price and a selection of contract periods was a nice addition. They have an awards program that drew my attention, and I can’t wait to see how that benefit plays out. Customer service to this point has been exceptional.

Sid A. Columbia, MD

AEP Energy has provided electricity at very competitive prices and does not have cancellation fees. It’s very easy to sign up for, with a seamless transition from previous supplier. There was good customer service too.

Claire C. Annapolis, MD

After comparing approved electricity providers from a list provided by my local utility, AEP Energy stood out with the lowest rates and no fees. The application process was quick and painless. Approval was granted in a short period of time. There was great communication from the company, and I look forward to earning rewards.

Susan C. Churchville, MD

Upon the recommendation of my son, an international meteorologist, I chose AEP Energy for my electricity provider. I originally switched to receive low rates and no cancellation fees, but I was very impressed with the customer service I received when renewing my contract. I have since recommended AEP Energy to a close friend, who indeed signed on, and I will continue to encourage other friends and neighbors to switch to AEP Energy.

Answering your questions


  • No. Most Public Utilities Commissions have only allowed investor owned utilities to participate in electric choice. Municipal electric cooperatives do not participate in electric choice.

  • There is no equipment to install or any changes in wiring or hardware. You also won’t experience any interruptions as a result of enrolling with AEP Energy and there will be no changes in your electricity delivery.

  • Eligibility rules for assistance programs can vary by state and/or utility. Please contact your local utility for more information. In Maryland, we can enroll customers who are currently on Maryland Energy Assistance Program (MEAP) or Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) and you will not notice a change with regard to your PIPP or LIHEAP benefits.

  • Unfortunately, if you owe money to the local utility, you are not eligible to enroll with AEP Energy until your balance has been paid.

  • No, AEP Energy will take care of notifying the local utility. Enrolling with AEP Energy does not eliminate or cancel your current local utility service. You will remain a customer of your current local utility as they will continue to read your meter, send you one bill that contains all of your charges and provide maintenance and emergency services.

  • In most cases, your service will begin on the next available meter-read date after your local utility accepts your enrollment. This typically takes up to 45-75 days after we receive your enrollment form. In Maryland, our service may begin as soon as three days after enrollment. You will receive a confirmation letter from your local utility that will provide your specific start date.

  • Switching fees are a cost imposed by your local utility (with the exception of Pennsylvania) that you may incur as a result of changing suppliers. However, AEP Energy will cover those charges. Please note – switching fees should not be confused with early termination fees. Many price plans do not include an early termination fee, however, please carefully review the terms and conditions of your contract.
