PA Power Switch was established by the Pennsylvania Public Utility
Commission (PUC) to help consumers make educated and informed decisions in the selection
process for an electricity provider. Energy deregulation in Pennsylvania
actually began way back in 1997 when the Electricity Generation
Choice and Competitive Act was established and passed into law.
To ensure that no hassles and other issues are encountered during the transition
from a utility monopoly to a competitive electricity market, price
caps on rates were put in place and have expired last Dec 31, 2010. Despite years
in the making, many people were still surprised why their electric rates suddenly
changed so PA Power Switch provided the information and tools to
educate people about these changes. People can even get better deals and savings
from what their electricity provider is giving them according to
the deals available in their locality and all this can be accessed through PA
