Public Utility Commission offers help choosing gas supplier

Written by Craig Layne and Radio Pennsylvania | Feb 3, 2013 6:55 AM

(Harrisburg) -- The state Public Utility Commission is offering a new tool to help natural gas customers compare costs.

Natural gas supplier choice has been available for 14 years, but only about 12 percent of users have made a switch recently.

PUC spokeswoman Denise McCracken says the PA Gas Switch page on the commission's Website is meant to encourage shopping for a provider.

"What a customer can do is simply put in their zipcode, and what will pop up is all of the available natural gas suppliers that they could choose from in their particular service territory, along with pricing and other incentives that the companies are offering," McCracken says.

She says the effort is similar to the push to encourage shopping among the commonwealth's electricity suppliers.

She adds similar information is available on the Office of Consumer Advocate's website.
