Energy deregulation isn’t new in Pennsylvania. The energy marketplace started deregulating in 1996. In 2010-2011, Pennsylvania became a fully competitive marketplace when rate caps expired, and consumers have had the power to switch energy providers since then.
Even so, Pennsylvania home and business owners are missing out on their share of an estimated $2.5 billion in energy bills savings every year. Though they’ve had the power to switch for the past 5 years, over 3.5 million consumers are overpaying on their energy bills.
