SMECO is a customer-owned electric cooperative, and every year customer-members elect the men and women who serve on SMECO’s Board of Directors.
The following environmental information is for Standard Offer Service. The data are published at the request of the Maryland Public Service Commission. The data are based on a combination of 2016 regional averages and SMECO’s Purchase Power Agreements (PPAs) in place. Since the data include PJM Interconnection (the regional transmission organization) wholesale market averages, the SMECO-specific emissions data may vary from these averages.
SMECO and the school systems of Calvert, Charles, and St. Mary’s counties recently honored 15 local educators for their leadership in the fields of mathematics and science. Nine math teachers and six science teachers from schools in the three counties received awards.
SMECO awarded four scholarships to high school seniors for 2017. Each year, SMECO awards four college scholarships to students who live in the Cooperative’s service area. Scholarships are based on the applicants' scholastic achievement, financial need, and school and community involvement. SMECO has awarded scholarships to 100 students in the 25 years since beginning the program in 1993.
If you are having trouble paying your electric bill, you may be eligible to participate in payment programs offered by the State of Maryland.
