Met-Ed (Metropolitan Edison Company) is a utility in Pennsylvania that serves thousands of customers every day. If you’re one of them, you may not be paying the lowest rates for your electric. At EnergyPricing.com, you can find a supplier with a low rate that is compatible with your Met-Ed PA service.
Also known as Metropolitan Edison, Met-Ed operates in southeastern Pennsylvania and covers 3,300 square miles. They are one of 10 utilities owned by First Energy, a corporation that owns entities in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio and West Virginia.
Met-Ed uses a portion of First Energy’s 269,000 miles of distribution lines to serve the counties outside of the Philadelphia Metropolitan area.
Utilities vs. Suppliers
A utility like Met-Ed is responsible for getting the power to the customers. Suppliers provide the energy that is sent across the power lines. Like many states in the U.S., Pennsylvania has a deregulated energy market, which gives utility customers the option to choose where they get their power.
As your utility, Met-Ed maintains the power lines and fixes any outages, regardless of who supplies your electric. When you choose a new supplier, they will set the rate you pay only for the supply portion of your bill. Your utility will still charge a fee for their portion of service.
In Pennsylvania, the state law says that utilities provide a default rate for users who haven’t switched to a supplier. These rates are called the Price to Compare (PTC), and change throughout the year.
The commercial (GS – General Service Small Non – Demand Metered) PTC is $0.061750 per kWh (effective 9/1/2021-11/30/2021), while the residential (RS rate class) cost per kWh is $0.071140 per kWh (effective 9/1/2021-11/30/2021). If your commercial account with Met-Ed has a demand greater than 100 kW, you may be subject to real-time pricing with Met-Ed and therefore ineligible for the default rate.
Met-Ed Service Territory
Met-Ed reaches 14 counties in southeastern Pennsylvania, including York, Lebanon and Berks. Several cities and towns in Met-Ed’s service area include:
York Easton Reading Hershey Lebanon
