Reading Energy Choice

In 1996, Pennsylvania deregulated the electricity market and Reading residents gained Energy Choice. Consumers could now choose their electricity provider, forcing electricity providers to compete on factors like electricity pricing and customer service.

The official energy shopping website of PA is called PA Power Switch. There you’ll find a potentially overwhelming number of offers from electricity providers with various levels of credibility. This makes it difficult to compare electricity rates and be confident you’ve made the best choice.

As an alternative to PA Power Switch, ElectricityRates.com brings you only great rates from the best providers. All providers and plans in our Marketplace are carefully selected so that you can rest assured you’ve made the best decision.

Reading’s Commitment to Renewable Energy
