The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission today commemorated the 20th Anniversary of The Electricity Generation Customer Choice and Competition Act of 1996, which for the first time gave the Commonwealth’s residential and business customers the ability to choose who supplies their electric generation.  The PUC made a number of announcements related to electric shopping in Pennsylvania, including: results of a new survey showing high levels of customer awareness and satisfaction with electric choice in PA; 14 consecutive months of growth in electric shopping; and upgrades to the PUC's electric shopping website - PAPowerSwitch.com.
