Why Switch Providers?

Electricity choice in Pennsylvania allows consumers to choose who they purchase their energy supply from. If you do nothing, you pay a default rate with your local utility company (PECO, PPL, Duquesne, Met-Ed). Consumers can shop for lower rates that can save them money on their monthly electric bills. They may also be interested in shopping for green energy plans that support the environment.

How Does it Work?

Once you choose a competitive electricity plan, the new supplier contacts your utility company and notifies them of the switch. The switch happens electronically during your next meter read date. You do not have to spend time waiting for a technician to come to your house, nor will there be an interruption of power service. You will simply start receiving an electric bill with the new lower rate.

No Additional Charges!

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission ensures that all residential electricity price offers are an apples-to-apples comparison to the utility default “Price to Compare”. This means that what you see is what you get. There are no additional set up charges or any other surprises.

Will Duquesne Light be Upset if I Switch?

No! Duquesne Light is your is your local regulated electric utility company, which means they are in charge of delivering power to your home and maintaining the lines and wires. They do not profit from the default generation rates that are on the bill. Instead they pass this money through to competitive energy companies who have won previously held auctions to supply default customers. Atlantic City Electric encourages their customers to shop for competitive generation rates.
