Critical Commentary

This article released by the Philadelphia Energy Authority is actually dated to this past November 2020, when the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission decided utilities could resume shutting off customers who did not pay their utility bills. With the November provisions, utilities were allowed to shutoff non-paying customers IF they followed the PUC's guidelines. These guidelines included protecting customers who were low-income, enrolling people in payment plans first, and doubling the shutoff notice time.
