What’s the Difference Between Duquesne Light and a Supplier?
Duquesne Light is a utility in the Pittsburgh area. As such, they are in charge of your distribution needs. Meaning, they ensure your power is at your home or business exactly when you need it. Suppliers, also known as ESCO’s (Energy Services Company) in PA, provide the electric that Duquesne Light sends to your business or home. Since Pennsylvania has a deregulated energy market, utility customers have the right to choose their energy supplier and try to reduce their energy costs.
If you live in Duquesne Light’s service territory, they’ll take care of any power line maintenance and respond to outages, regardless of who supplies your electric. Your supplier agreement will set the rate you pay for your power but there will still be a charge for your utility getting the power to you.
Pennsylvania requires Duquesne Light to provide a default rate when users do not choose a supplier. These rates are called the Price to Compare (PTC), and they’re measured per kilowatt-hour (kWh).
In Duquesne Light, the current residential service (RS rate class) PTC is $0.0741/kWh (effective as of 9/1/2021 and subject to change). For commercial GS rate class, the price to compare is $0.0644/kWh (effective as of 9/1/2021 and subject to change). For commercial rate classes using over 100 kW in demand, they are likely on real-time pricing with the utility and ineligible for a default price to compare rate.
