ConEdison Solutions announced in early November that it has expanded its electricity services to residential customers of Metropolitan Edison in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
The number of electricity providers in Pennsylvania has sky-rocketed since the beginning of the year, as companies look to take advantage of the market the state created by dropping electricity rate caps. The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission reports that those electricity suppliers serving Met-Ed specifically have more than doubled this year and the vast majority of all providers have entered the state in the past few years.
"With all the suppliers Pennsylvania firms can choose from, it is important to select a trustworthy and reliable provider with a proven record of achievement," Robert Anderson, vice president of ConEdison Solutions, said in a statement. "Not only has our firm supplied electricity to hundreds of thousands of households around the region, but we have also helped thousands of businesses, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to regional and local firms manage energy spending."
According to numbers from PAPowerSwitch.com, an electricity deregulation resource for Pennsylvania residents, Met-Ed has seen far lower numbers of customers switch electricity providers. Only 5.5 percent of all customers and 3.3 percent of residential customers have made the change, making the possibility of a trusted company potentially promising.
