Shop Pennsylvania deregulated energy suppliers today

More 2 million Pennsylvania residents and business owners have saved with a deregulated electricity or natural gas plan, thanks to the PA Power Switch program.

If you’re not one of them, now is the time! Since January, two of the state’s largest public utilities, PECO and Duquesne Light, have increased their energy rates by roughly 5 percent. Why pay more for the same electricity? Switch to a deregulated energy plan today.

 

Save with deregulated energy

Pennsylvanians across the state can take advantage of low electricity and natural gas rates from some of the nation’s most trusted competitive providers.

If you live in Pittsburgh or Philadelphia or any of the cities listed below, you could save with a deregulated energy plan:

 

What is Pennsylvania electric choice?

The Electricity Generation Choice and Competition Act, passed by the state legislature in 1997, allowed for PA electric choice.

Electric choice took the energy monopoly away from the utilities and gave power back to Pennsylvanians across the state. Now, residents and business owners can choose from a number of nationally-recognized retail energy providers, or REPs, and save on their monthly energy bills.

 

How does the deregulated energy system work?

Retail suppliers purchase electricity wholesale and sell it directly to you, the consumer, while utilities continue to deliver that power through the existing infrastructure of transmission lines. Of course, consumers can choose to receive their power from their utility – but they might be paying more for the same energy.

No matter which supplier you choose, your local utility is still responsible for maintaining the electrical infrastructure in your area. If you notice a power outage or electrical emergency, report it to your local utility immediately.

 

What is Pennsylvania gas choice?

The deregulation of the gas market came shortly after that of the electricity market, when the Natural Gas Choice and Competition Act was signed into law in 1999. Similar to the state’s electric choice system, the legislation gave Pennsylvania’s residents and business customers the opportunity to choose which deregulated company supplies their gas.

As with the power program, your relationship with your local utility will remain regardless of what retail supplier you choose, whether it’s an independent gas supplier or your utility. The local utility will continue to deliver your gas supply through the pipes that run underneath your neighborhood and ensure that the system is working properly. Any issues with your gas supply, such as a leak, should be reported to your utility immediately.
