The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) begins its annual “Be Utility Wise” consumer-education events in Erie on Friday, September 13, for the first of eight statewide events promoting consumer awareness, utility education, life management skills and financial literacy.
Each fall the PUC sponsors Be Utility Wise (BUW), bringing together front-line community service agencies, utilities and other key stakeholders to focus on ways to help low-income households maintain essential utility services – sharing tools and resources about customer assistance programs, energy efficiency and conservation; reviewing information and guidelines about various support programs; and exchange ideas on ways to improve service to at-risk households.
The theme of this year’s campaign is “Shining the Light: Leading the Way to Community Resources.”
