Deregulation in Pennsylvania
In 1996, the state legislature passed, and Governor Ridge signed into law, the Electricity Generation Customer Choice and Competition Act, which gives Pennsylvanians this right to choose the company that generates their electricity.

What happens when you choose a new commercial electricity supplier:

  • The new supplier notifies the old supplier and utility that you have changed suppliers.
  • The new supplier transmits utility account information to the utility in order to enroll you as a customer.
  • The utility confirms, by letter to you, of your new supplier selection and the date your new service begins.
  • The actual change of supplier occurs on the meter reading date
