Penn Power (Pennsylvania Power Company) is a utility in Pennsylvania, and they handle your electric distribution if you live on the western side of the state. If you have not picked a supplier, then they are charging you a default rate also known as the Price to Compare (PTC). This rate changes throughout the year and is not likely the best rate on the market. At EnergyPricing.com, we can help you select a supplier with your ideal price.
About Penn Power
Penn Power is located in western Pennsylvania owned by its parent company, FirstEnergy. The FirstEnergy Corporation owns nine other companies spanning Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Jersey, West Virginia and Maryland, and it serves over 6 million customers.

What’s the Difference Between a Utility and a Supplier?
If you live in the Penn Power service area, they’re responsible for getting the electric to your home or business. Suppliers, or Retail Electric Providers (REPs), supply the electric that Penn Power sends to the end user. Pennsylvania’s deregulated energy market allows utility customers to choose a supplier in their service area for energy supply.
Utilities like Penn Power will maintain power lines and restore and outages, no matter who is your REP. Your REP will set the rate you pay for electric.
Price To Compare in Penn Power
In Pennsylvania, Penn Power will provide a default rate if you do not choose a supplier for yourself. These default rates are called the Price to Compare (PTC) per kilowatt-hour (kWh). The PTC is based on what your utility pays for significant amounts of energy from the wholesale energy market, which means you’re likely not paying the lowest rate in the market. The PTC differs for residential and commercial customers.
In Penn Power, residential customers (RS rate class) are paying $0.076570/kWh (effective 9/1/2021 – 11/30/2021) and commercial Penn Power customers (GS rate class) are paying $0.084950/kWh (effective 9/1/2021 – 11/30/2021) as the default utility rate unless they have switched to a third party supplier or are a large energy user. If you are a large energy user, you are subject to real-time pricing and do not have a price to compare to default back to. All the more reason to lock in a low fixed third party rate.
