Editor’s note -- Important information for customers.
Below is our regular update on changes to the price to compare – the price paid by customers who do not shop for their energy. It’s important to note that:
• Customers do not have to pay the price to compare.
• They can get a cheaper price by shopping for their energy supply.
• There are many suppliers that offer better prices.
PPL Electric Utilities has posted its price to compare for customers who do not shop for their electricity.
Effective March 1, the new price to compare for residential customers will be 9.559 cents per kilowatt-hour (currently 9.318 cents per kWh). The price to compare for small business customers will be 10.121 cents per kilowatt-hour (curently 9.325 cents per kWh).
Shopping for energy supply: Information about shopping for electric supply can be found on the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission’s website, www.PAPowerSwitch.com, or at www.pplelectric.com/choice.
PPL Electric Utilities encourages customers to save on power supply costs by shopping with competitive electric suppliers.
About the price to compare: Generation rates and prices to compare for residential and small business customers are adjusted quarterly to reflect the cost of power purchases and adjustments based on customer use in the prior period. PPL Electric Utilities does not profit on the generation portion of customers’ bills. It merely passes along the cost of that supply to non-shopping customers without markup.
PPL Electric Utilities, a subsidiary of PPL Corporation (NYSE: PPL), provides electric delivery services to about 1.4 million customers in Pennsylvania and consistently ranks among the best companies for customer service in the United States. More information is available at www.pplelectric.com.
