Technically and in most cases, you can open a bank account for your business in any state, regardless of the state of formation.

Most banks would ask you to show them proof of registration in their state or a corporate statement that the company does not conduct any business in that state.

If you do business in Pennsylvania you would be required to register your Delaware company as a Foreign Entity in Pennsylvania this way or another, and then you should have no problem opening a bank account.
