PPUC Investigates Deregulated Energy Markets

by Luke Johnson on June 1, 2011

Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission will have a hearing on June 8, 2011 at 1 p.m. in the Hearing Room 1 of the Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North St., Harrisburg, PA to examine the competitive electricity retail market for the state of Pennsylvania. You can read more about the agenda on the PPUC website.

Chairman Robert F. Powelson said “One of the great challenges for regulators is keeping up with the industries and the markets they regulated. Our goal during this state-wide investigation is to make recommendations for improvements to ensure a properly functioning and workable competitive retail Pennsylvania electricity market exists in the state.”

April 28, 2011 was the official launch date of the investigation. Vice Chairman John F. Coleman said “This statewide investigation gives the Commission an opportunity to assess the status of the market and to make the necessary adjustments for the more robust electricity shopping experience for Pennsylvania consumers. This investigation will detail how to best address and resolve the issues identified.”

The two phases are designed to assess the status of the current retail market to learn how to better market the benefits of deregulation and how to implement changes to fix the issues found.

The Secretary of the Commission is accepting written comments from all interested parties. June 3, 2011 is the deadline for written comments. The address for comments is PA Public Utility Commission, P.O. Box 3265 Harris burg, PA 17105-3265. The comments received will help the Commission in moving the progress of electricity deregulation forward.

PPUC is dedicated in making energy market easy to use and understand. Consumers can trust the safe and reliable utility services offered in the state of Pennsylvania.
