Allen, TX (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
Thanks to energy deregulation in Pennsylvania, residents now have the power to choose their own energy provider. With Shop My Power’s recent launch into the Pennsylvania market, residents can now use the website to compare electric rates in Pennsylvania and choose a local company that complements both their budget and their lifestyle.
Up until 1997, electric companies in Pennsylvania were regulated by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and residents had no choice in how much they paid for their power. After House Bill 1509 was passed, monopolies were eliminated, and competitive prices broke out giving residents of PA the power to switch to the electric company of their choice.
Instead of sorting through dozens of electric company websites to find a suitable energy rate, Pennsylvanians can now use Shop My Power to compare electric companies in Pennsylvania in one place by simply typing in their zip code. With its simple layout and functionality, Shop My Power lets users search for providers as easy as 1-2-3. If users want to narrow their search down further, they can choose an energy provider based on a fixed or variable rate plan, a long or short contract term, or other features (such as 100% green energy, special rebates, or a company with no termination fee).
C.O.O. Jeff Schneider stated “we realized that in markets where consumers can choose their energy providers, it was difficult if not impossible to sort through and compare, in some markets, over 200 different plans. The only place to efficiently find this information is on the Internet and some people are still not comfortable using the Internet or have difficulty viewing small print. With that in mind we sought out to develop a comparison tool that would be easy to use, and displayed in a clear and uncluttered format.
