Consumer Resources

As of 2000, the Pennsylvania electricity market is deregulated - meaning that electricity consumers can choose which company they want to produce their energy, while transmission and distribution are still handled by the local utilities. (For a more detailed explanation, see Pennsylvania Electricity Deregulation.) This means that Pennsylvania consumers can purchase clean, renewable wind energy to power their homes and businesses, with no change in service or reliability. For more information on your options as a Pennsylvania energy consumer, visit Pennsylvania Utility Choice.

Pennsylvanians may find out how environmentally friendly their current electricity supplier is by visiting the Power Scorecard, an online environmental impact calculator. Consumers may also use the Power Profiler, an online tool from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency that measures the real pollution effect of one's energy use.
