New billing system to support hourly pricing


Connectiv Power Delivery, a subsidiary of Pepco Holdings Inc., is rolling out LODESTAR’s BillingExpert in support of standard offer service and basic generation service customers, to support hourly pricing. Connective is a regulated electricity and natural gas provider with over one million residential and industrial customers.

BillingExpert will be used to calculate hourly priced energy charges and distribution charges, in addition to replacing the current semi-automated system – necessary because of the increased volume of bills. It will also enable the utility to create hourly, market-based contracts for certain customers. /
