AKRON, Ohio, May 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Residents served by PPL now have the opportunity to lock in a low fixed price of 6.35 cents per kilowatt-hour for electric generation until June 2016 through ChamberChoice and FirstEnergy Solutions. This is a savings over PPL's current average residential rate of 7.24 cents per kWh, and the estimated rate of 8.24 cents per kWh starting June 1, 2013.
"Although offers have been made available to Chamber members and their employees in the past, this is the first time a residential offer has been extended to the entire community – and we have seen a great response," said Bob Carl, executive director of the Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce, which participates in ChamberChoice. "This is the lowest fixed price currently available to PPL customers, which means this offer provides both savings and the budget certainty that comes with locking in a fixed price."
To enroll, residents should go online to fes.com/chamberchoice or call 1-855-473-7433 to speak to a program representative.
ChamberChoice provides local Chamber of Commerce members with business products and services such as individual and group health, dental and vision insurance options, human resources solutions, business insurance with dividend potential, energy savings program, voluntary benefits, and more.
