Compare Citizens' Electric supply rates

An investor-owned electric utility, Citizens' Electric Company's supply rates are regulated by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission. When residents of Lewisburg and its surrounding communities need power, Citizens' Electric is one of their options from which to purchase their power supply.

However, energy consumers in Pennsylvania have the freedom to compare supply rates offered by both their local utility and various retail electric suppliers, thanks to the PA Power Switch program. Since 1997, the Pennsylvania energy marketplace has offered its residents electric choice, meaning they are no longer required to use their local utility when they need to purchase power. Instead, they can compare Citizens' Electric PA supply rates with those offered by retail suppliers to find a plan that best fits their lifestyle, energy needs and budget.
