Understanding Your PECO Electricity Bill

There are typically two types of charges on your PECO electricity bill, delivery charges and supply charges. With Energy Choice, you can take control of your electricity supply charges by switching electricity providers.

PECO Delivery Charges

Delivery charges are the portion of your PECO bill that covers the costs to deliver electricity and natural gas.  These are set by PECO and approved by the Public Utility Commission of Pennsylvania (PA PUC).

Supply Charges

Supply charges are what you pay for the electricity that you use. By default, these charges are set by PECO if you do not participate in Energy Choice, and may fluctuate based on wholesale energy market conditions.

PECO Price To Compare

The Price to Compare is the rate per kilowatt-hour for the default electricity supply from PECO. As you can infer from the name, the Price to Compare is what you use when comparing electricity providers and plans. You can find it on your PECO electricity bill.
