New PUC Report Shows Improvement in PA Households Starting Winter Without Heat-Related Utilities; Consumers Urged to Call About Heating Aid

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission today released the results of its annual Cold Weather Survey, which showed that more than 22,000 households across the state are entering the winter season without heat-related utility service or using unsafe heating sources.  That figure is approximately 9-percent lower than last year (2,150 fewer households starting the winter without heat), and nearly 13-percent lower (3,147 fewer households) than the “Polar Vortex” winter of 2014.
