AARP’s Pennsylvania State Office, in response to its commitment to ensure reliable electricity service for all residents, commissioned this survey to explore the views of residents age 50+ on their electric service.
Key findings include:
- 68 percent support continuing to require Pennsylvania electric companies to offer a “default electric plan” that is priced at the lowest reasonable price.
- Fifty-eight percent believe it is extremely or very important for Pennsylvania electric customers to have a “default electric plan” that is priced at the lowest reasonable rate to allow customers a baseline to compare to other electric plans offered by alternative electric suppliers while another one in five think it is somewhat important.
These results are based on a telephone survey fielded August 29 to September 7, 2013 of 802 Pennsylvania residents age 50 and older. For more information, contact Joanne Binette at 202-434-6303.
