Philadelphia Electricity Providers

When you live or run a business in Philly, you have the option to choose where your power comes from. If you have yet to choose a supplier, you may not be getting the best deal on your electric. At, we help you find a Philadelphia electric company and rate that reflects your usage.

Understanding Philadelphia Electricity Rates

Pennsylvania is one of 16 states with a deregulated energy market, which allows consumers to choose who supplies their energy. Your utility is in charge of getting the energy to you and handling maintenance concerns. In Philly, your utility is the Philadelphia Electric Company or PECO.

If you haven’t chosen a supplier, PECO will provide a Price to Compare (PTC). The PTC is a price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) representing the average price of wholesale energy over time. Your PTC likely changes quarterly, and it’s probably not the lowest rate available.

Other energy rate parameters to consider are the gross receipt tax (GRT) and rate type. Pennsylvania requires a tax on all energy, and your GRT is factored into your energy rate. The current GRT is 6.27% but suppliers often quote without it. Utilities include it in their Price to Compare rate. We recommend comparing rates with and without tax to gain perspective on prices because regardless of your tax exemption status, all consumers of energy must pay GRT.

Rate type will also play a role in the price you pay. Fixed-rate contracts maintain a constant price, and when rates are low, these contracts can be ideal. Variable rates rise and fall with the market, which comes with higher risk, but greater reward when the market is low. It’s valuable to note that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) may require rate adjustments regardless of your contract type, though this doesn’t happen often.
