How to Cancel Pepco Service Before You’re Charged Again

Pepco, which belongs to the Exelon company, is an energy and natural gas provider operating in Columbia and Maryland districts. If you’re moving out of these areas and no longer require the company’s service, here’s how you can cancel Pepco quickly and without any issues.

How to Cancel Pepco on Your Own?

There are several ways in which you can terminate your Pepco subscription manually:

  • Canceling online on pepco.com 
  • Calling the Pepco support
  • Visiting one of Pepco’s Customer Support Centers in person

Note that you’ll have to inform Pepco of your moving out—if that is why you’re canceling the service—at least three working days in advance to avoid being billed for the service you won’t be using.

How to Cancel Pepco Online

There are two ways you can cancel the Pepco service using the company’s website. You can log in to your Pepco account, go to the Stop Service page, and follow the prompts from there.

Alternatively, you can reach the Pepco support by completing their online Contact Us form and requesting a cancelation through it.
