Comparison Shopping in PA is Hopefully Going To Get Better

What are you really paying for your electricity per kWh?

The supplier may list a price per kWh, but does it include all the additional, often hidden, fees?

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) has initiated a “rulemaking” process that would force suppliers to list the total price per kWh including any additional fees. The PUC is trying to combat the misrepresentation seen in the electricity-shopping market. Just last month the site papowerswitch.com was claiming PECO customers could save as much as 44% annually, but failed to mention this did not include the enrollment fee and that the rate was only guaranteed for three months. The website has since been changed to say, “potential savings”, but this is just one example of how hard it is for consumers to know whether the price they are given is the full amount they will actually pay.

With all this uncertainty, comparison shopping becomes harder and harder to do on your own. Businesses especially often do not have the proper time and resources to devote to it. But there is an answer. Finding a reputable broker to contract your electricity with will allow you to have an expert compare prices for you and give you the piece of mind that for the duration of your contract, prices will not increase. This allows commercial customers to get back to what really matters, their business!
