Choosing an electric generation supplier
In the past, there was no choice for the consumer. Your electric distribution company – either Met-Ed or Penelec - provided every aspect of your electric service. This included generating the electricity and delivering it to your home or business. Now, the Pennsylvania Electric Choice program allows you to choose the supplier who generates the electricity. Met-Ed or Penelec will continue to deliver the electricity to you and maintain the same poles and wires. It is like using your local phone company’s lines to make calls with your long-distance company.
You now have the opportunity to choose your electric generation supplier based on the best price available or because of other services or programs it offers. The choice is yours and it may result in cost savings. If you need more time to choose, or decide not to choose at all, Met-Ed or Penelec will still supply the generation component of your electricity.
