Understanding deregulation in Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania is one of the many U.S. states where residents can choose where they buy their energy because of deregulation. Although you can still buy energy directly from a utility like PPL, you can also choose to buy electricity or gas from other energy providers. Giving consumers the freedom to buy energy from a number of energy suppliers keeps competition strong, which helps lower Pennsylvania electricity rates.
At Choose Energy, we make it easy for you to research ways to reduce your energy bill or switch energy providers. You can compare electric suppliers or look at options in any major Pennsylvania city. Here are a few helpful resources:
