Commerce Energy: Maryland

Since 1999, certain Maryland electricity and natural gas consumers have been able to shop for a new rate on their energy supply. Energy deregulation allows retail energy suppliers to offer rates on energy supply separate from what is offered by the utility in deregulated service areas.

In Maryland, you can find retail energy plans from Commerce Energy. Commerce Energy is part of the Just Energy Group Inc., family of energy retailers. Just Energy offers retail energy plans to consumers in deregulated markets throughout North America. In Maryland, customers of Baltimore Gas and Electric, or BGE, can choose a retail energy supplier, such as Commerce Energy, to supply natural gas and electricity to their homes and businesses.
