Shop electricity rates in Erie

The Erie Triangle was once a disputed territory between four colonies and the Eriez tribe, but was officially defined in 1792 when the commonwealth of Pennsylvania purchased the area from the U.S. government. With such a diverse history, it’s no surprise that the competitive spirit of the past carried forward. Residents here enjoy a deregulated energy market, which gives consumers the power to choose natural gas and light companies to supply their energy. 

While most homes aren’t as large as the ones found on West 6th Street (or Millionaire’s Row), every home has access to the same selection for finding a competitive electric company in Erie, PA. 

SaveOnEnergy makes it easy to compare electricity rates in Erie and find an energy plan for your specific needs. Enter your ZIP code to see which plans are available in your neighborhood, which might include no deposit or prepaid plans. That’s much better than just running a browser search for “energy plans in my area,” which means you’ll have spend hours sorting through the results and comparing them.

Green energy in Erie

Pennsylvania is still very reliant on coal and natural gas, but as of late 2020 about 4.5% of the state’s overall energy consumption came from hydroelectric, wind or solar sources. And PA is working to improve its renewable and green energy. It has 24 wind farms that generate enough electricity to power about 350,000 homes. 

If you’re looking for an Erie energy plan that uses renewable or green energy, the percentage of renewable energy can be found in the details for each plan. In Erie, Constellation Energy and Clearview Energy have plans that utilize green power.

A few things to remember

  • Don’t forget to read your plan’s Electricity Facts Label before signing up. It contains important information including:
    • Price per kilowatt-hour based on usage
    • % renewable energy sourcing
    • Early termination fees
  • Enjoy hassle-free supplier setup. Once your order has been confirmed, your new supplier will set up service with your utility, or transmission and distribution service provider (TDSP) – but don’t worry, there shouldn’t be any interruption to your power during the switch.
  • Understanding your electricity bill. Your local TDSP will still deliver your electricity and maintain electric infrastructure including meters and power lines. Your utility fees can be found as TDU or TDSP charges on your monthly bill. They are independent of your supplier rate.
