About deregulated energy in Pennsylvania

The deregulated energy market in Pennsylvania separates the process of supplying and delivering energy to customers. The purpose of deregulated energy is to promote a competitive marketplace where retail suppliers offer low prices for high-quality energy. The deregulated energy system also gives customers more choices when it comes to how much energy they use and where it comes from.

Retail energy suppliers in Pennsylvania offer competitive rates and plans that can range from variable monthly plans to long-term green energy contracts. Once you’ve chosen a new supplier, Penelec will communicate directly with the company to ensure that you receive reliable service without any interruptions.
