Critical Commentary

Pennsylvania's Public Utility Commission rejected a proposal to give 113,000 PECO households a one-time $50 dollar credit on their bills. This request was submitted by PECO to the PUC, who deadlocked on the decision and ended up rejecting it. This proposal would have also directed $1.5 million in funds to provide fans and replacing window A/C units, as well as allowing more relaxed criteria for low-income requirements. Rejecting this proposal would mean the effects will be felt across different income-level households. PECO representatives are disappointed at the PUC's rejection of the proposal but they continue to work with the commission to find a timely response. This deadlock does not come as a surprise given the PUC also deadlocked on ending the moratorium on disconnections.
