Duquesne Light

Duquesne Light serves more than 560,000 electric customers in the Pittsburgh area as an electric delivery company; that is Duquesne Light is in charge of delivering the power from the generation  plants to the consumers (households, offices, schools, malls, etc.).

Duquesne Light does not profit from the supply charges on the electricity bill (generation and transmission).  However they do provide default pricing for customers who do not shop for competitive electricity rates.  Duquesne Light does not profit from the default price to compare rate, and instead passes along the revenues earned from these charges to competitive energy companies who have won previously held auctions to service default paying customers.
