I am shopping with a competitive supplier. What happens when I do not pay my PECO bill in full?
PECO may terminate your service for failure to pay charges billed by PECO, regardless of whether the charges were assessed by PECO or by your competitive retail energy supplier. If you cannot pay your PECO bill in full, please contact PECO to discuss payment arrangements and other options.
What is Customer Choice? What am I actually choosing?
Most PECO customers have the option of choosing a competitive supplier to provide the electric and/or gas supply portions of their service. This form of shopping for energy is known as "Customer Choice". PECO customers not electing a competitive supplier continue to receive these services from PECO.
In all cases, PECO remains the distribution company and continues to safely deliver electricity and natural gas to ALL of its customers, regardless of whether you choose to shop in this manner.
If I choose to "shop" with a competitive supplier, will PECO still deliver my energy?
Yes. Whether you are purchasing your electricity and/or natural gas from a competitive supplier or from PECO, PECO will continue to safely deliver electricity and natural gas, provide billing and customer support, and respond to outages and other emergencies for ALL customers
How can I become a competitive retail energy supplier of electricity (EGS) or natural gas (NGS) for PECO customers?
Interested organizations must fulfill certain requirements before enrolling PECO customers. To learn more, please review PECO information for retail energy suppliers.
Where can I find information on PECO solicitations relating to PECO's Default Service Program for electricity?
PECO's Independent Evaluator maintains up-to-date information on solicitations relating toPECO Procurement of Default Supply.
What is the Gross Receipts Tax and how is it factored into Price-To-Compare?
The Gross Receipts Tax (GRT) is a Pennsylvania state tax imposed on the gross receipts from sales of electric energy within Pennsylvania. PECO's Price To Compare includes an adjustment for GRT. To adjust its prices for the GRT percentage rate, PECO multiplies the pre-GRT price by a factor equal to 1/ (1 - GRT%).
For example, if the GRT rate was 6.06%, the adjustment factor for GRT would be 1/(1 - .0606), or 1.0645.
Will my Price to Compare change?
Yes. Your Price To Compare will vary in future periods due to changes in consumption patterns as well as changes in PECO's cost of supply. The prices of electricity and natural gas fluctuate, and these changes affect the cost of supply and Price To Compare values.
