Ready to make the switch? It’s easy to choose an electric supplier

Rising costs have consumers rethinking their energy choices.

Lawmakers opened Pennsylvania’s electric market to competition in 1996 when they enacted the Electricity Generation Customer Choice and Competition Act. Before competition, average Pennsylvania electric rates were 15% above the national average. Now, they are about 7% below that average.

Fully competitive electric markets foster innovation, enhance consumer protections, and provide better overall service and value for customers by giving them more choices, convenience, and control.

Are you ready to make the switch? It's fast and easy.

First, visit PAPowerSwitch, the official online electric shopping website of the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission.

Second, review the fixed, variable, and unlimited rate offers available to you. Or look specifically for power generation methods of tomorrow by opting for wind, solar, or other renewable and sustainable options.

Third, take extra time to review and compare the different offers, including contract terms and fees. You can shop for a competitive electricity supplier that matches your preferences and provides the best overall value.

Fourth, click the plan that’s best for you!

The PUC recently approved regulations that dramatically reduce the time it takes customers to change electricity suppliers, allowing the electric distribution company (EDCs) to switch customers within THREE business days once the EDC has been notified. Under previous regulations, it could take up to 40 days to switch electric suppliers, whether changing suppliers or moving to or from the utility for electric supply.

Choosing an electric supplier really is fast and easy. Why wait? Get started today. Visit or to search for competitive suppliers where you live.
