Frequently Asked Questions

What is my price to compare?

The price to compare is the figure you use to compare prices and calculate potential savings among suppliers. The price to compare includes both the cost of generation and the cost of transmitting power from the source of generation to Penelec's distribution system.

You will save money if you can find a supplier that will sell you electricity for a price that is less than your price to compare.

Penelec's Waverly customers may call the company's Retail Choice Center toll-free at 1-888-478-2300 if they do not know their price to compare.
