Penn Power Net Metering

Offering net metering to consumers is a win-win situation for Penn Power and individuals who get their electricity from the company. The purchase of solar panels and alternative electricity sources is often prohibitively priced for private individuals. Net metering allows purchasers of these electricity sources to sell extra wattage back to their electricity supplier, making the installation of these alternative sources more financially friendly.

Energy Loss

Penn Power reported an annual loss of about 0.79% of the electricity that they produce. Loss of energy due to heat dissipation during electricity transmission and other causes is a reality of operating in the electricity generation industry and providers are required to report these losses. This percentage of electricity lost earns them a rank of 13th best out of 115 providers reporting energy loss in the state.
