What is the PPL rate (the price to compare)?

Below is the current PPL price to compare. This is the rate customers pay if they don't shop. Remember: We buy electricity for customers who don't shop and pass it on without markup. It does not hurt PPL Electric Utilities if customers shop – in fact, many of our employees shop as well.

Delivery covers PPL's costs for equipment, crews and customer service. Supply covers both the generation of electricity and the delivery of it across high-voltage transmission lines.

PPL doesn't generate electricity. We just deliver it.

PPL doesn't generate electricity. We just deliver it. Think of us like a package delivery company: You can order an item from a store, and another company will deliver it.

If you don't shop, we shop for you and pass along the cost without markup. This rate is called the “price to compare.”
