    How to Shop for an Electricity Supplier in PA

    Since Pennsylvania electricity is deregulated, your transmission and distribution charges from your utility will be the same no matter what provider you choose. With PA energy choice, you can compare electric supply rates in PA.

    Shopping for electricity rates in Pennsylvania isn’t hard. However, it’s time consuming wading through all those offers. There are over 100 electricity rates to choose from. That’s a lot of rates to compare.

    ElectricityPlans was created to make it easy to shop for your supplier.

    Here are some basics to keep in mind, whether you shop for a licensed electric generation supplier (EGS) using PAPowerSwitch or an alternative like ElectricityPlans

    1. Decide the type of plan you want. In Pennsylvania, you can choose from fixed rate, variable rate and renewable energy fixed rate plans. We always recommend fixed rate plans (traditional or green) because they give you rate stability. After all, if you want a variable rate, just stay with the utility and watch your rate change every 3 or 6 months.
    2. Look for the lowest rate per kilowatt hour. It really is that simple. Sort by lowest to highest to find the best rate.
    3. Read the fine print. The details of your electricity plan matter. How long is the contract term? What’s the early termination penalty if you want to switch away or go back to the utility?
    4. Enroll with your new supplier. Once you’ve selected an electricity plan and provider, it takes less than 10 minutes to enroll online.
    5. Your rate changes automatically. There’s nothing left to do. Your utility manages the switch for you. Nothing changes other than the rate on your utility bill.

    TIP: Have a copy of your electricity bill handy when you enroll. You will need to know your account number to enroll for service. Moving to a new house? Call the local utility company to get your account number lights turned on, then choose a supplier with a lower rate.
