Price to Compare

To make sense of your electric bill, you have to understand what the term “Price to Compare” means.The price to compare (PTC) is the price per kilowatt hour (kWh) your electric distribution company will charge for distribution and transmission services.As you shop for electricity, ask competitive suppliers to provide you with a price so that you can make an apples-to-apples comparison for the generation portion of your bill.Be sure to ask how long the price is effective and verify if taxes or other fees are included in the PTC.Price and duration of a contract are equally important. Consider both when making your decision.  The link below will take you to a small sampling of PTCs collected from a few distribution companies in Pennsylvania.
