Appetite for Consumption: The Rise and Fall of the Pennsylvania Ratepayer

Eric Epstein
Coordinator
EFMR Monitoring, Inc.

Abstract
Since the deregulation of the electric industry in Pennsylvania, the processes and agencies charged to encourage, solicit, and facilitate public participation have failed to connect or create viable and sustainable platforms. With rates set to spike, a dramatic rise in the number of delinquent customers, and the number of customers losing power at record levels, can we afford to lockout public participation?
