PECO Electric Supply Charge Decreases, Effective September 1

Electric supply charge reduction lowers average customer bills by about 3 percent. 

PHILADELPHIA (September 1, 2023) — Effective September 1, PECO lowered its electric supply charge for customers not receiving their energy from a competitive energy supplier. The electricity or natural gas used by customers – or the supply charge – makes up about half of a residential customer's total bill. PECO updates this charge, which is included in the Price to Compare (PTC), every quarter as market prices change. The PTC is the price customers can use to evaluate offers from competitive energy suppliers, and the charges are passed along directly to customers at the exact cost PECO pays. 

  • Electric - The new residential Price to Compare will decrease 6 percent to 9.672 cents per kWh. The monthly electric bill for an average residential customer will drop by $4.48 per month, or by about 3 percent. This rate is also one of the lowest among Pennsylvania electric distribution companies. 

  • Natural Gas - Natural gas supply charges will remain the same for customers from the previous quarter at the residential Price to Compare (PTC) of 54.211 cents per Ccf.

    "We do everything in our power to keep the lights on and natural gas flowing for our customers, both safely and efficiently," said Funmi Williamson, PECO SVP and Chief Customer Officer. "We will continue to work hard to control costs, reduce volatility and purchase electricity and natural gas at the lowest price possible for customers."

There are many ways customers can gain control over their energy use and costs to save money. PECO provides an extensive range of billing and financial assistance programs to help qualified residential customers experiencing economic challenges manage their energy bills. As the seasons change, customers are encouraged to monitor energy usage and take advantage of PECO's energy efficiency programs.
