Your Power: Your Choice Archives

Since January 1, 2010, Pennsylvanians have had the power to chose their electrical provider thanks to electric rate cap expiration. WITF's Your Power: Your Choice is an ongoing effort to help our viewers, listeners and readers understand the impact the changes have on their power costs and usage. From magazine articles and news stories to radio and television features, WITF has a myriad of resources that explain how  to shop for an electrical provider, what the rate caps were, why they expired and more.

Below are a set of archived articles and audio and video clips pertaining to the electricity choice.
