Why can we now shop for our electricity?
For more than 10 years, electricity rates for most Pennsylvanians didn't increase, thanks to the 1996 electricity competition law, which capped the rates. During that time, costs of everything, including the production of electricity, rose.
As rate caps are lifted, electricity costs from each utility are expected to rise

What is the Background for PA deregulation of electricity?
When the Pennsylvania legislature passed the law to eliminate the monopoly on electricity and allow customers to shop for their electricity supply, Pennsylvanians were paying some of the highest electricity rates in the nation and virtually no renewable energy was available. As part of that law, caps were placed on rates and a Competitive Transition Charge (CTC, also called stranded costs) was added to pay off investments utilities made under the old system that had been approved by the Public Utility Commission (PUC). The PUC created a schedule for elimination of the CTC and the lifting of rate caps.
When did the rate cap on my electricity expire?
By early 2010, rate caps expired in seven electric service territories across Pennsylvania:
UGI Utilities Inc., Pike County Light & Power Company, Citizens Electric of Lewisburg, Wellsboro Electric Company, Duquesne Light Company, PPL Electric Utilities Inc. and Pennsylvania Power Company.
Rate caps expired on December 31, 2010 for territories serviced by West Penn Power, Pennsylvania Electric, Metropolitan Edison and PECO Energy companies.
