new ppl electric rates june 2022

In about a week, the cost of electricity for most people in Schuylkill County will go up.

Way up.

New rates announced recently by PPL Electric go into effect on June 1. When they do, PPL Electric customers in Schuylkill County – both residential and business – are going to notice.

Here’s a look at the changes that go into effect on the 1st and will be in place until at least Nov. 30:

  • 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.
