HARRISBURG, PA — In response to the ongoing threat to public health posed by the COVID-19 virus, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) today announced that its upcoming public meeting – scheduled for Thursday, March 26 – will be conducted telephonically.
The PUC public meeting will begin at 10 a.m. on March 26, and members of the public, the media and others can begin accessing the telephone conference call starting at 9:45 a.m. that day. Interested parties can listen to the meeting by calling 1-888-917-8050, and then entering passcode 9570961.
The Commission welcomes the public to join the telephonic meeting, stressing that it will follow the Commission’s customary public meeting protocol with only Commissioners and the PUC’s Secretary speaking on agenda items.
A final agenda for the public meeting will be published on the Commission website on Wednesday, March 25.
Under the unique circumstances presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, conducting public meetings and other routine Commission business telephonically – to help minimize non-essential personal social contact – is consistent with the Governor’s Proclamation of Disaster Emergency and the requirements of the Public Utility Code.
The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission balances the needs of consumers and utilities; ensures safe and reliable utility service at reasonable rates; protects the public interest; educates consumers to make independent and informed utility choices; furthers economic development; and fosters new technologies and competitive markets in an environmentally sound manner.
