Your energy service has two parts – delivery and supply. Your bill shows the costs for both.Delivery: This is the cost to deliver electricity or natural gas to you. PECO’s delivery cost and policies are regulated by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PA PUC). Delivery charges include all the infrastructure used to safely deliver power to your home or business. This includes poles, wires, gas lines, meters, equipment and trucks.
Supply: Supply charges cover the actual cost of the electricity or natural gas. You can shop for this part of your energy service. Supply is not a regulated service.PECO is the default service provider for customers who don’t choose an alternate supplier. PECO procures generation supply at market value. We charge the Price to Compare (PTC) rate for the generation/supply part of your bill.
You can choose PECO for your electric or natural gas supply, or you can shop for a supplier. You can shop based on factors such as price, special services or renewable energy.The monthly savings that you may get by shopping will depend on the rate charged by the supplier(s) you choose. The prices charged by suppliers could be higher or lower than PECO’s PTC for the same services.Use PECO’s PTC to evaluate offers from other suppliers. Your PTC can be found in the Message Center on your bill. PECO’s PTC changes quarterly in March, June, September and December.
No matter which supplier you choose, PECO will continue to safely deliver your energy. We also will provide customer support for billing, outages, emergencies, and other issues.
You can shop with energy suppliers that are licensed by the PA PUC and registered with PECO.
