Shop electricity rates in Pittsburgh

With close to 300,000 residents, Pittsburgh is the second largest city in Pennsylvania (behind Philadelphia) and the 67th largest in the country. When Pennsylvania deregulated the energy industry in 1996, the city’s residents were free to find the best electricity rates in Pittsburgh and choose their own electric supplier.

Pittsburgh residents don’t have to make this decision on their own. Save On Energy offers a free online marketplace with a comparison tool that will let you look at Pittsburgh electricity providers. You can compare Pittsburgh electricity rates and find the plan that fits your needs.

Green energy in Pittsburgh

In 2019, Pennsylvania generated about 4% of its electricity from renewable energy sources, ranking 41st in the country. Hydropower, or energy generated from water, was the largest renewable source, providing about 40 percent of the state’s renewable energy portfolio.

Most Pittsburgh electricity providers typically include a percentage of renewable energy in their plans. The amount varies, but you can find this information on the plan’s Electricity Facts Label (EFL). Additionally, many providers offer plans with 100% renewable energy.

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.
