Compare PPL Electric Rates to Competitors

Headquartered in Allentown, Pennsylvania, PPL Electric Utilities delivers electricity to 1.4 million customers across the Commonwealth. The utility, also known as Pennsylvania Power and Light or PPL, was founded in 1920 and also serves customers in nearby Kentucky and faraway Great Britain. Today, Pennsylvania Power and Light is the fourth largest employer in Lehigh Valley.

PPL Electric Utilities is responsible for the safe and reliable delivery of your electricity. PPL will maintain your electric lines and help you during a power outage. For a long time, PPL Electric Utilities was responsible for both the supply and delivery of electricity, but in 2011, Pennsylvania legislators deregulated the energy market, giving you the power to compare PPL electricity rates against offerings from a variety of competitive suppliers. 

Don't confuse PPL Electric Utilities with PPL EnergyPlus

If you've done any shopping for electricity rates, you may have found rates from PPL EnergyPlus, a PPL electricity supplier. Even though it is owned by PPL, PPL EnergyPlus is its own separate provider and otherwise has no relationship to PPL Electric Utilities. If you're shopping for PPL EnergyPlus rates, you have already started the shopping process and might as well take a little extra time to compare rates from other competitive suppliers. You might find a plan that's right for you!

There are plenty of reasons to compare PPL electric rates to the competition. If you don't choose a competitive supplier, you will pay the PPL Price to Compare, which may not be ideal. The PPL Price to Compare varies quarterly alongside the energy market, which means your rates could significantly increase during a heat wave or polar vortex.

Here are a few benefits to shopping for electricity rates.

  • More options: You can choose from a number of stable- and variable- electricity rates offered by competitive suppliers. Whether you're looking for the lowest available rate or long-term price protection, you will have more electricity choices than if you stay with PPL.

Green energy has social, economic and environmental benefits.
