WILKES-BARRE – The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) will host its second annual Scranton/Wilkes-Barre/Hazleton “Be Utility Wise” event, “Connecting the Dots to Financial Stability,” from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23, 2014, at Mohegan Sun Convention Center.
“As we have learned in winters past, it’s critical that we educate consumers and equip them with both resources and knowledge to help them ‘Prepare Now’ for winter, both physically and monetarily,” said PUC Chairman Robert F. Powelson. “In order to do this, we must first educate our industry workers who are on the front lines and working with consumers every day. The last thing we want is for families to struggle to heat their homes and pay their utility bills this winter.”
In addition to networking opportunities, the event will feature presentations from state agencies, local utility companies and other financial assistance programs in order to share ideas and services. Presenters will discuss the process of shopping for an electric supplier, financial assistance programs for utility customers, energy conservation and weatherization, protecting against utility scams and more.
This year’s participants include the PUC, the Department of Public Welfare, the Commission on Economic Opportunity, the United Way, PPL Electric Utilities Corporation, UGI Utilities Inc., Pennsylvania American Water, Conservation Consultants Inc., Pennsylvania CareerLink, Self-Determination Housing Project of PA Inc. and Consumer Credit Counseling Service.
