All Pennsylvania regulated electric companies are adjusting their rates starting June 1, with most lowering their rates and only one increasing them.

With summer just around the corner and temperatures starting to rise, Pennsylvanians can feel a little better about turning up the air conditioning as most electric companies in the state will be dropping their rates slightly

According to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC), residents in the state should expect to see changes to their electric bills starting next month.

All Pennsylvania regulated electric companies are adjusting their Prices to Compare (PTC) for residential and small business non-shopping customers, the PUC said. The rate changes will take effect June 1. The PTC is the price per kilowatt hour (kWh) the electric company charges its customers.

The PTC averages 40% to 60% of the customer’s total utility bill. Below is a list of the rate changes:

  • Citizens’ Electric: from 9.869 to 8.089 cents per kWh (down 18%)
  • Duquesne Light: from 10.46 to 10.37 cents per kWh (down .9%)
