Pennsylvania May Allow Electricity Aggregation

Pennsylvania State Representative Harry Readshaw has introduced House Bill 778 to allow municipal electricity aggregation in Pennsylvania. The bill would allow municipalities to create organizations that negotiate with electricity suppliers on behalf of residents and small businesses (those with less than 50 kW of demand), reports RetailEnergyX. If the legislation is enacted as it stands, contract periods will align with default service periods, and customers will be able to opt not to participate—though they will pay early termination fees for leaving prior to the end of contract periods. HB 778 resembles similar legislation introduced during 2013, but that bill did not advance past the House.

Pennsylvania would become the eighth state to allow municipal aggregation. Earlier this month, Retail Energy Buyer reported that New York had become the seventh state when the state’s Public Service Commission approved a municipal aggregation project in Westchester County.
