Scranton energy rates

Scranton, Pennsylvania, earned its name as the electric city in 1880 for installing electrical lighting on Penn Avenue, just two months after it opened to the public. Afterward, the first fully functioning trolley car system was installed in town, and those living in Scranton were part of the new energy wave.

With a growing population of 75,809, Scranton relies on good energy rates. Scranton energy rates are not only important to homeowners, but with an average of 21 new buildings going up each year and 80 percent of the population spending their days within the various buildings in town, employers need affordable energy too. The energy prices in Scranton have made it a model for many other cities that are looking to improve their energy market for consumers.

Scranton energy deregulation

Prior to energy deregulation, Scranton residents were forced to purchase their energy from PPL, which meant that customers had no control over their energy costs. While PPL offers a fixed rate, some residents are finding their energy needs to be better met through outside sources, like TriEagle, XOOM, and North American Power.

These suppliers offer residents with a rate that either matches that of the main supplier or is available at a lower cost. Some providers guarantee that the rate will remain within 5 cents of the main supplier, PPL.

Scranton utility companies & energy providers

For many years, energy was provided from a single source -- the utility company. However, with deregulation set in place, residents in Scranton can shop outside of the utility company and choose their energy provider. PPL Electric is the primary utility company for the area, and they handle the transmission and distribution of energy throughout the town. PPL is also responsible for emergency situations, even if an outside energy provider is used. Choose Energy has partnered with Scranton's most reliable energy providers, including Spark Energy, North American Power and XOOM Energy.

Through additional steps, such as installing energy-efficient lighting and improving wall insulation, the city is making its way toward green living and saving on its natural energy resources.
