The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has upgraded its website,
by enhancing its online shopping tool targeted at small businesses in the state.
In a statement, the PUC said the “Shop for Your Small Business” section of the website provides small business owners with the opportunity to quickly compare rates and products of electric generation suppliers making offers in their area. Small commercial and industrial customers, with a peak demand of 25 kilowatts or less, can now shop for their EGS with pricing information in the same manner as residential customers currently do. This includes the ability to search by zip code or electric distribution company, and also sort EGS offers according to price per kilowatt, price plan, alphabetically or other criteria.
In Pennsylvania, consumers can choose the company that generates their electricity. This means consumers have the power to switch to a competing supplier that may offer a lower price or provide a specific service such as renewable energy sources.
