My Electric Supply
As an electric customer of Corning-PLC&P, you have a choice of suppliers to provide your electricity. Your options are:
OPTION 1: Stay with or select Corning-PCL&P's default service and receive a quarterly market-based rate for electric supply.
We provide default service if you don't obtain your energy supply from an Electric Generation Supplier. We purchase electric supply in the wholesale spot market and pass the rates down to you at no cost. Default service rates are determined quarterly and are comprised of the following:
- Market Price of Electric Supply (Corning-PCL&P's forecast of the wholesale supply costs and expected procurement costs for the quarter);
- Electric Supply Adjustment Charge (a quarterly reconciliation of the monthly over- or under-collections that compares the actual default service costs with default service revenues); and
- An adjustment for recovery of the Pennsylvania Gross Receipts Tax.
For Corning-PCL&P's historical monthly and quarterly market-based electric supply prices, please view [Corning-PCL&P's Price to Compare Chart](1.3), or view it in our [tariffs](5.2).
OPTION 2: Stay with your current Electric Generation Supplier or shop for another.
The names of Electric Generation Suppliers doing business in Corning-PCL&P's service territory are available on the PAPUC's PowerSwitch website and on [our List of Energy Suppliers](1.1.1). Or, you can contact a Customer Service Representative at 1-877-434-4100 for this information.
