This poll, published by NPR's State Impact Pennsylvania, is designed to see how many people in Pennsylvania have reconsidered their energy provider choice after the Texas grid failure. The article points to how, for some Texas customers who were on a variable rate plan, saw their electricity bill spike during the crisis. Pennsylvania has a similar structure for consumers selecting variable rate providers. 

The PA PUC reports that about 29% of customers in the state have opted for variable rate providers. The survey is designed to get more information on the state of energy choice in PA.
