The commission should look into the huge increases from Pennsylvania American Water in the Exeter Township area.
My bill is more than quadruple than the previous months... And I'm not the only one.

STOP PWSA
NO MORE RATE INCREASES, I PAY ENOUGH, ACTUALLY CAN'T AFFORD IT!!
Empire Access's service sucks and the PUC makes that possible. Government allows the monopoly.
My SREC credits for residential solar production keep getting lower and lower. The PA PUC was directed by Act 40 of the PA Legislature in 2017 to stop contracting with out-of-state facilities. Has the PA PUC acted in the spirit of that law and closed off those contracts, or is that the source of our SREC issues?
Stanton St. Wilkes - Barre, left this way by TSE, subcontracting for Pa American Water. Has been this way for 7 weeks.
Just wondering if the PUC can do anything about the way our streets have been left after TSE, subcontracting for Pa. American Water installed a new water line. The work was started in December and they finished off all of the services 7 weeks ago. They put in modified dirt and rock and came back and milled and temporarily paved over it, they only did half the road from Brown St. to Grove St. The other half from Grove to Airy St. was left with just the dirt in it. There is dirt and rocks everywhere and very deep pothole and ruts They came back twice in the 7 weeks and swept some of the dirt and rocks back into the holes which was back out in an hour. Our vehicles and property are a mess, rocks flying everywhere and the dust is horrible. This is a very heavily traveled route for school busses and school vans. Vehicles are getting ruined and someone lost their bumper insert a few days ago. I’m pretty sure that these cuts are supposed to be patched properly by law. I’m posting a few pictures of the mess in hope that the PUC can do something to help.
I don't understand why you don't give the people a hint as to what exactly your telephonic meetings are all about when you advertise them....or do you prefer a clueless state of people...
is it legal for frontier communications to charge for internet and they starting this month have a new charge of internet infrastructure surcharge of $6.99
Who are you to decide the fate of people not working because of our POLITICANS ridiculous restrictions!!
My friend lives in Delaware county, she is struggling to make her Electric payments that she set up in the payment plan. She works in the food industry and lives mostly from tips. Covid has all but taken her income away. She is choosing between her healthcare and medication and these payments. Her car JUST broke down, it is her livelihood, she delivers pizzas. In the past if she misses a payment the electric company, demands full balance. I am asking for her without her knowledge right now. Where can she get help to get this electric bill off of her shoulders? So I can steer her there? Please help me help her!
We have an energy crisis in Philadelphia Pa — a lack of energy from state lawmakers and the Public Utility Commission about fixing the crooked business of selling electricity to homeowners.

Both sides are giving each other cover to do nothing.

The PUC this year sent lawmakers a report about the glorious, wonderful, amazing electricity shopping system it regulates. A problem? Not on their watch.

Lawmakers getting that report from the state regulators can say: "Everything is fine. We don't need to make changes."

So far in this legislative session, no one has introduced an electricity bill designed to end deceptive marketing practices.

The Watchdog wants to blow their cover. The system remains a horror show of confusion, duplicity and unnecessary complications. There's no reason electricity companies should get the best of regulators and consumers, but they do, time and again.
