PA ranks high for electricity market reforms
CPBJ Reports: Pennsylvania is ahead of most of North America in creating competitive electricity markets, according to an ABACCUS industry report released Wednesday. The state ranks No. 3 among U.S. states and Canadian provinces in providing electric choice for residential consumers and No. 4 for its commercial and industrial electricity market.
Pennsylvania is No. 3 for its number of energy suppliers (33) and product offerings (55). The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission is considering further market-oriented reforms to the state’s regulatory framework, such as changes that would facilitate consumers switching to competitive suppliers.
