Why choose electricity from a new supplier?

Take a look at your latest electricity bill and you’ll see that it is made up of two main parts: distribution or delivery charges, and supply charges. Your local utility delivers electricity through the power lines into your home; these are the distribution or delivery charges. You generally have little control over this part of your bill, however, you do have control over the supply portion. This charge is usually shown as the price per kilowatt-hour and you have many options to choose from other than the default rate from your utility.

More than 2.1 million households and over 250,000 businesses in Pennsylvania have shopped around for their electricity supplier, taking advantage of energy choice.

Comparing energy suppliers allows you to lower your monthly bill, lock in a fixed rate, or find a renewable green energy plan such as wind or solar. It is entirely up to you to decide what the most important factor is when choosing a supplier.

Once you select a new supplier on Choose Energy your utility company will be notified and will reach out to you to verify your new energy provider. Your utility company will not change, only the company providing the electricity or natural gas will change. You will continue to call your electric utility for outages, emergency services and questions about your electricity service. The quality, reliability, and maintenance of your electric service should not change as it is still monitored by the PUC.
