If you don’t sign up with an energy supplier of your choice, Duquesne Light will continue to provide you “default” energy service at a rate approved by your state’s public utility commission. If possible, you should avoid the “default” energy service, since you will likely pay a higher rate than you would with an independent energy supplier.
Make an apples-to-apples comparison between the “default” plan offered by your utility and those offered by energy suppliers. If another supplier’s price per kilowatt is lower than the “Price to Compare,” you can save the difference by switching.
These rates include only the cost of producing the electricity. There are additional costs for delivering the energy, which will remain the same whether you sign up with an energy supplier or not.
