New energy legislation for PA consumers to keep an eye on

Energy has been a hot topic in Congress in recent years, especially under Obama’s presidency. New laws are now being proposed that could change the industry yet again. Last month in Michigan, Sen. Wayne Kuipers and Rep. Roy Schmidt proposed a new bill which would increase the amount of customers who can purchase from competitive suppliers. Previously, the state limited the retail choice to 10 of total electricity demandthe new cap would be 25. This legislation would open up the energy industry to create more efficient options in the new economy, and could be emulated by other states if it takes hold.June also saw the addition of two new commissioners to the COMPETE energy coalition, which show that competitive markets create the perfect environment for clean energy.
