HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) today announced several updates to address this winter’s variable rate issues in the retail electricity market, including additional information on types of rates. One of the additions is a “Things to Consider when Choosing a Fixed or Variable Rate” box on the shopping page, which leads to information and a chart on the differences between fixed and variable rates.

“PUC actions can have a substantial impact on customers and, in particular, on educating and empowering customers to make well-informed choices when participating in the retail electricity market,” said PUC Chairman Robert F. Powelson during his testimony April 29 before the Pennsylvania Senate Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Committee. “With this in mind, the PUC has undertaken a number of innovative consumer-education initiatives and two rulemakings designed to ensure that customers have access to the information and educational materials they need to make wise decisions regarding their electricity supply options.”
