Shocking 15 Percent Rate Increase on PPL

Pennsylvania electricity customers who get their energy from PPL should start preparing themselves for the shock of a lifetime. That’s because when they open up their June energy bills they will see that their normal costs have increased by a shocking 15%. There has never been a better time to get active about shopping around for a lower cost electricity provider in the Pennsylvania area!

Sure, we could complain about the rate hike. After all, there are a lot of reasons to complain about rates going so high, so quickly. Customers never look favorably upon a rate hike but this one is particularly offensive because it isn’t going to happen gradually. Many electric companies implement huge rate hikes but they phase them in over the course of a few years so that customers can at least adjust to budgeting for the new expense. This rate hike is going to hit quickly.

Complaining isn’t going to do anything, though. The rate hike has already been approved and is going to start as of June 1, 2011 whether you complain about it or not. So the only thing to do is to take advantage of the fact that electricity deregulation provides you with the right to choose a lower cost provider for your own energy. You don’t have to accept the high rates that are going to affect PPL customers starting in June; you can choose to empower yourself with a decision to find a fair priced company today!

Consider that the current default electric rate in Pennsylvania is already 9.766 cents per kWh. The 15% increase will result in a default rate of 11.22 cents per kWh. Why would you pay a default rate this exorbitant when there are electricity companies that are offering rates that are below even the current pre-increase rate? Some companies are offering rates that are as low as 6.49 cents per kWh, a rate that is nearly half of what the new charges will be after the rate hike in June. It simply doesn’t make sense to pay twice as much as necessary each month to get your electricity when there are other options available. Do something about it today and compare PPL low-cost electric suppliers!
