Now that deregulation has proven to lower electricity rates for many energy consumers a weird phenomenon is happening in the PECO electric utility area.

People in the PECO electric utility locations are choosing to not shop and compare electric rates. A large majority of PECO elecricity customers would rather not go through the hassle of changing to a new electric company.

In every state where electric rates have dropped in price due to deregulation people eventually choose to switch away from their monopoly electric utility.

Although Pennsylvania energy consumers in PECO utility have not gotten on board in large part they will eventually.

The question to ask yourself is will you switch to an alternate electric provider in PA now or later?

  • Will the electric service differ in quality? No the electricity comes from the same pole and wires and generation facility as it has always.
  • What changes when I switch to a competitive electric rate and company? Your billing changes, the price you pay, as well as customer service.
  • Can I try before I commit to a new PA electric supplier? Yes you can get on a month to month plan and if you are not happy you can switch back to your old provider and pay no penalty.
