Pennsylvania Electric Companies
Pennsylvania is one of the largest suppliers of electricity in the country. All types of power generation are present here. The largest reserves of natural gas and coal are combined with a significant share of nuclear power in the overall energy mix. Four nuclear plants operate in Pennsylvania, the most powerful of which is the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. 24 wind farms, dozens of wind-related manufacturing facilities and hydroelectric power plants generate about 3% of all electricity.
The electric companies responsible for installing, maintaining transmission lines, and transmitting electricity from producer to consumer are the electric utilities. The number and scope of power outage in Pennsylvania has decreased over the past 5 years, which is a testament to the good work of the electric utilities. The best known electric utilities are PPL Electric Utilities, PECO, Met-Ed, Duquesne Light Company.
Electricity reaches residents and commercial consumers through electricity retailers. Pennsylvania is a deregulated electricity market, which means it is possible for consumers to choose a supplier company. High competition among electric retailers keeps prices from rising too much. Electric retailers like North American Power offer customers different types of electric plans, including fixed-rate and variable-rate plans. Despite the low percentage of renewable energy use in Pennsylvania, it's possible to install a solar panel and lower your electric bill considerably. There are many electric solar panel installers in the state, including EcoGen America, Imperium Solar.
