Save money on your PA power bill!

Save money on your PA power bill!

Stop spending so much on your Pennsylvania power bill! The electric bill can be a budget-buster when you’re surviving on a low income. Fortunately, your power company can usually help. There are several unknown or little-advertised programs that power companies may offer that can help lower the cost of your power bill.


Most power companies offer a budget billing plan, which averages the annual cost of electricity in a home and bills the customer in 12 even installments. This can help low-income customers maintain a budget and avert payment problems, especially during the more expensive winter months.

Some Pennsylvania power companies even offer FREE energy-efficiency products to their customers! If you’re low income, you could even save hundreds of dollars per year on your bill with programs like LIHEAP.

Duquesne Light Company is what we're stuck with in my half of the Greater Pittsburgh area. I was hoping you could find some information on that? We struggle with our electric bill every month and I was hoping we might have some options.
