Electricity rate hikes are expected from BGE, Pepco and other local utility companies this year but thousands of Maryland and DC homeowners are not worried one bit. “I didn’t pay anything for electricity from mid-March through October!” says Jim Mattingly a homeowner from Washington DC. Rich Lechner from Pasadena states, “I really enjoy watching the BGE meter spin backwards.” Candice Stankus, a Rockville homeowner says she is very happy with her home energy bills. “Last summer we paid nothing for our electricity, even with the air conditioning going full blast.” What do these homeowners have in common? – They all get their electricity from the sun.
