It's easy for Potomac Edison customers to participate in the choice program.

All you need to do is sign up with a supplier. The supplier will need information, including your name, address, phone number and 20-digit customer number to provide service. The supplier also may ask you for permission to have the utility release your energy use information.

When you shop, you'll use your "standard offer service price" to check the prices offered by suppliers. In order to save money, you must buy your electricity from a supplier at a price that is less than the standard offer service price you'll receive from Penelec.

If you buy your electricity from a supplier, your bill may include the cost of the kilowatt-hours purchased from the supplier.
