West Penn Power rates for supply
Thanks to PA electric choice, residents and business owners have the power to switch their energy supply from a Pennsylvania utility company to an alternative retail energy supplier. Switching from a utility to a supplier may work well for consumers looking for a variety of plans.
The utility company's electricity supply rates are regulated by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, but that doesn't necessarily mean these rates are more competitive than supplier rates. In order to ensure that you're getting the best out of your electricity supply, shop around and stay informed on suppliers, plans and rates available in your area. If you don't find a supplier that works with your energy needs, you have the option to stay with your utility.
