DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware regulators are set to consider the proposed $6.8 billion acquisition of Delmarva Power and Light Co.’s parent company by Chicago-based Exelon Corp.

The state Public Service Commission was scheduled to meet Tuesday to being final deliberations on the proposed merger of Exelon and Pepco Holdings Inc.

Delaware regulators agreed last month to delay action until their counterparts in Maryland ruled. Maryland regulators signed off on the deal Friday, but they imposed more than 40 conditions, including giving some residential customers a $100 credit and setting aside $43 million for energy efficiency programs.

The two companies said Monday that they will work to meet the 46 conditions set by Maryland regulators.

The proposed merger concessions in Delaware include a $40 million, one-time customer bill credit for Delmarva Power residential customers.
