PECO to Raise Residential and Commercial Electric Rates Oct. 1

Pennsylvania public utility PECO Energy Co. announced that it will raise its electric supply rate for residential and commercial customers on Oct. 1.

The residential supply rate will increase by 7 percent, from 10.42 cents per kilowatt-hour to 11.14 cents. The supply rate for small commercial customers will increase 5 percent, from 10.32 cents per kilowatt-hour to 10.87 cents.

There are two main charges on PECO’s bills. The supply rate is for the electricity that customers use. The delivery rate is for delivering the electricity to homes and businesses, regardless of where it comes from. While the supply rate is determined by whether customers buy their electricity from PECO or an alternative retail electric supplier, PECO collects a delivery charge from every electric customer in its service territory.

Only customers who buy their electricity from PECO will be affected by the rate increase on Oct. 1. Customers that buy their electricity from a retail electric supplier will be unaffected.

In a statement announcing the rate increase, PECO recommended that customers use its supply rate, also called the price to compare, to see if switching to a retail electric supplier will save them money.
