The state Public Utility Commission really wants electric users to switch from their utility to one of the dozens of alternative suppliers.
But PPL Electric Utilities inadvertently keeps giving electric users more motivation to stick with them.
PPL will cut its residential rate by 4.1 percent Friday, reflecting the cheaper prices it’s paying to obtain power on the wholesale market.
This latest change, announced Tuesday, is the third consecutive quarterly rate reduction for PPL.

PPL Electric Utilities is planning $705 million in improvements to its infrastructure over the next five years and is turning to its customers to help pay the bill.
PPL spokesman Bryan Hay said the company plans to file a petition this week with the state
Public Utility Commission asking for a new fee that would help fund improvements to the company’s distribution system.
Hay did not provide specifics about the new charge, but said details would be released this week.
