  • Residential: 12.366¢/kWh, up from 8.941¢
  • Business: 11.695¢/kWh, up from 9.675¢

For residential customers, their electric bill will go up 38.3%.

According to the Energy Information Agency of the federal government, the average Pennsylvanian uses 10,402 kWh of electricity each year. At the new rate, their yearly cost is $1,286, which is more than $300 higher than the cost at the lower rate. It’s equal to about $30 more per month on average on the electric bill.

The new electricity rates are coming at a particularly unwelcome time for many as inflation takes its toll on consumer wallets. With the price of practically everything up dramatically in 2022, especially, a higher electricity bill is the last thing many need.

      I agree. And these nitwit left wing Anti-Americans still support the Idiot in Chief occupying the White House. That’s because they are too busy trying to protect their right to kill babies as if it were a sport. The Demorats disgust me beyond words.
