Learn about energy deregulation
Pennsylvania Power and Light operates as a utility in a deregulated energy market. Deregulated energy markets feature separate prices for electricity and the transport of electricity. While consumers automatically pay their utility, Pennsylvania Power and Light, for electricity transmission, they have the option to buy electricity itself from a different company. These other businesses that sell energy plans are called energy suppliers. By shopping energy suppliers, you might find a lower electricity rate.
Consumers should not confuse PPL Electric Utilities with PPL EnergyPlus®. PPL EnergyPlus is a subsidiary of PPL Corporation and a separate company from the PPL that people know as the local utility. Whereas PPL Electric Utilities is the electric company that residents rely on to get the lights back on during a power outage, PPL EnergyPlus is a retail energy supplier that purchases and sells electricity and natural gas plans and renewable energy credits in deregulated areas. If you are a customer of PPL, PECO or Met-Ed in Pennsylvania, you might be able to purchase energy supply from PPL EnergyPlus.
