You Can Save $$$ – PUC Announces Upgrades to Electric Shopping Website PAPowerSwitch

papowerswitchSwitching power is easier than ever.  You may be able to save money by switching your electric supplier.

In Pennsylvania, you can choose the company that generates your electricity – also known as your electric supplier. This means that you have the power to switch to a competing supplier who can offer the lowest price or provide a specific service you want, such as green/renewable energy.  See what options are available to you!  PAPowerSwitch.com

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) recently announced upgrades to PAPowerSwitch to make the site fully responsive no matter what kind or size of device they use, with updated cleaner and easier navigation; a more attention-grabbing way for visitors to learn more about individual offers on the shopping pages; consolidated pages; and enhanced security.  Over the last two years, nearly 1.9 million visitors have shopped for electric supply offers using PAPowerSwitch.

Chairman Brown pointed to the Commonwealth’s competitive electric market experiencing 14 consecutive months of sustained growth since early last fall.  As of the end of November, nearly 2.1 million Pennsylvania electricity customers (or 36.9 percent) currently receive their electric generation from a competitive supplier.  The November 2016 figure reflects a 3.5 percent increase in the total number of shoppers from September 2015, when the statewide monthly shopping number last dropped.

  • PAPowerSwitch.com, the PUC’s neutral source for power shopping information, is a trusted resource to which respondents turn for information about electric providers, and it will be an educational and helpful resource in the future when making electric provider decisions.

Of the consumers who visit PAPowerSwitch.com:

  • Ninety percent somewhat/strongly agree that the website provides helpful information.
  • Eighty-seven percent are very/extremely satisfied.
  • Seventy percent say that the website is very/extremely easy to navigate.

Pennsylvania PUC Enhances Ability to Search for Utility Complaints

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) announced a series of enhancements to the PUC website in order to make it easier for consumers to find and review complaints involving utilities.

“Earlier this year we launched a new website feature that allows users to search by company for formal complaints filed against regulated utilities,” Commissioner Pamela A. Witmer explained. “Our latest updates take that process another step forward, allowing consumers to access complaint information from the front page of our website, using just one click of the mouse or a single tap on the screen.”

PaPUC Seach Complaints

Using prominent links on the PUC website, you can now automatically jump to the complaint search for specific types of regulated utilities, including: electricity, natural gas, telecommunications, water/wastewater and transportation. Additionally, a “Search for Consumer Complaints” link has been added to each industry category on the website, and this is the first link provided to visitors who are reviewing information on the site.

The updated search function is part of an ongoing effort by the PUC to make clearer information available about all utilities operating in Pennsylvania. Links to the enhanced complaint searches have also been added to the PUC’s PAPowerSwitch website, which offers detailed information about power shopping options available to consumers.
