EPX and Electric Choice Options!

Rate caps have been lifted, which may spark elevated electric bills.
However, consumers can now compare prices from different suppliers to find a lower rate.

Senator Farnese has requested the combined South Philadelphia Civic Association Alliance invite all their members to hear the Public Utility Commission (PUC) present information about electric choice options.

The event will occur in the auditorium at Ss. John Neumann- Maria Goretti High School on Thursday April 28th at 7pm.
