Energy rates in Harrisburg
In the 1990s, Harrisburg was part of the same service area as surrounding cities in Pennsylvania, with energy rates about 15 percent above the norm. The city was well above the national average for electricity use, although there was a large abundance of coal available at a low cost. In 1996, lower energy rates in Harrisburg were promised to consumers through a new utility company, and the amount of energy used throughout the area began to decrease.
Harrisburg energy rates are capped, which ensures that customers’ energy rates will not increase once they choose the main utility company or one of the chain suppliers. Check out Harrisburg energy rates and natural gas plans to see what prices and options are currently available
