Consumer Activist: Residential Electric Choice In Pennsylvania "Failing"
Discussing a proposal from the FirstEnergy Pennsylvania utilities to implement a new bypassable adder for default service (first reported by EnergyChoiceMatters.com last year), Ken Springirth, described as a Consumer Activist, told WJET-TV (Erie, Pa.) that, "customer choice, right now, is failing in Pennsylvania for residential customers."
Springirth told WJET-TV that a local public hearing on the FirstEnergy EDCs' proposal was "successful" given public opposition to the proposed adder at such hearing, with hundreds in attendance
Springirth said that the safest thing is to remain on default service, and said residential savings from choice were minimal
