Why Choose an Independent Electric Company in PA?

Residents of Harrisburg, Lancaster, Reading, and other areas throughout PA have expressed curiosity about whether they can choose a different electric company in Pennsylvania. As a result of electricity deregulation in the state, Pennsylvanians do have the ability to choose an energy retailer, like UGI EnergyLink, to supply the electricity through their utility, to their home.

After you make us your electric company in PA, your utility—whether it is Met-ED, Penelec, PPL, West Penn Power, etc.—will continue to supply and deliver electricity to your home. The utility will continue to serve as the appropriate point of contact for various electric issues you may encounter, such as power outages. Additionally, the utility will continue to send you a monthly bill. But now UGI EnergyLink will appear on the bill as your electricity provider. The biggest benefit of choosing a deregulated electricity retailer in Pennsylvania is that you now not only have freedom of choice, but you also have the opportunity to receive lower rates on your residential electric service.

Electricity usage is charged on a per kilowatt hour (kWh) basis, depending on how much you use to heat and cool your home, as well as run your lights and appliances. This usage charge—your kWh rate—is where you have a choice and an opportunity to save. Spending even pennies more per kWh can add up fast! Why not save money while enjoying the same type of electricity service you’re used to?

Selecting a Pennsylvania Electricity Provider

Historically, Pennsylvanians have been confined to the same utility for their full electricity service. Now, with electricity deregulation, residents have a choice of energy providers—including UGI EnergyLink—for the supply portion of the commodity provided by the utility. You are no longer held to having the utility supply your electricity, you can choose which company will supply your electricity, and you will still receive the same great and uninterrupted service that you have in the past!
