PUC Announces Agenda for November 10th Retail Electricity Markets Investigation Hearing

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) recently announced the Agenda for their November 10, 2011, en banc hearing, which is part of the PUC’s ongoing investigation into Pennsylvania’s competitive retail electricity markets.

Following a presentation of consumer survey results, the en banc hearing will be divided into five panels addressing issues such as consumer survey results; a statewide consumer-education campaign; accelerated switching timeframes; customer referral programs; retail opt-in auction; and default service plans beyond June 2013.  The panels include a mix of consumer advocates as well as utility and supplier representatives.

The hearing is to be held:
12:30 p.m. Nov. 10, 2011
Hearing Room 1
Commonwealth Keystone Building
400 North St., Harrisburg, PA

The hearing is designed to provide insight on key issues that the PUC plans to address either before or as part of the intermediate work plan to promote competition.  The PUC has selected panel participants representing a diverse set of perspectives.  Panel participants will make a short presentation then the Commissioners will conduct a question and answer session of each panel.

Interested parties are welcome to submit written comments after the en banc hearing no later than Nov. 23, 2011. Comments along with any questions about the hearing should be directed to The comments will be considered as part of the process to develop an intermediate work plan.
