Duquesne Light electric rates
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.
Residential customers on the default plan currently pay a rate of [content_block title="Duquesne Light PTC" id="7743"] cents per kilowatt hour. Check out the natural gas suppliers in the Duquesne Light service area and compare plans to see if there's a better one for you.
Duquesne Light "Price to Compare"
This rate is your “Price to Compare.” You can use it to 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.
To report power outages or downed power lines, you should call Duquesne Light's customer service line at the number listed above.
