Standard Offer Program
PPL customers can participate in the Standard Offer Program, also called the Customer Referral Program.
Under this program, the utility will assign you to a supplier. You will have a fixed rate for 12 months, with a guaranteed savings of 7% off PPL’s currently effective price to compare.
Keep in mind that it’s 7% off the price to compare that’s in effect on the day you sign up. PPL’s price to compare changes twice a year. But your rate under the Standard Offer Program will stay the same for the full year.
Also keep in mind that you may be able to get even greater savings if you shop directly for a competitive supplier. Most of the rates above will give you a savings of 10% or more versus the current price to compare.
