This year may be off to a cold start, but homeowners across Pennsylvania are already looking ahead toward spring. One part of your spring cleaning routine may be looking through your family’s budget and spending habits and finding new places to save money.  Whether you are trying to save up for some spring remodeling or want to budget extra spending money for your summer vacation, even saving $20 on your monthly energy bill can greatly add up.

Because PA has a deregulated electric market, you are able to easily switch electricity suppliers with the possibility of securing a lower rate and saving money on your energy bills.

Residential Electricity Pricing Options

While each electric suppliers’ rates will vary, UGI EnergyLink offers fixed rate pricing and indexed pricing for residential customers. The fixed rate pricing is ideal for households that need to meet a specific budget and want to be able to estimate their energy bills based on electricity consumption each month.
