Utilities vs. Suppliers

Penelec is in charge of electric distribution. Suppliers, often referred to as Retail Electric Providers (REPs), provide the electric that Penelec sends to homes and businesses that receive their service. In PA, the deregulated energy market gives you the option to choose your supplier.

Penelec will always restore a loss of power and maintain power lines, no matter who your supplier is. The supplier you choose will set the supply rate you pay for your power based on the current market and supply verse demand.

State laws require utilities to provide a default rate for users who do not choose a third party option. This default rate is known as the Price to Compare (PTC) per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Your PTC is based on the price your utility pays for energy on the wholesale market.
