Pennsylvania State Public Funds for Rate Assistance
Under electric and gas restructuring legislation all electric
and gas utilities are required to offer universal service programs,
to include Customer Assistance Programs (CAPs), and to continue
pre-restructuring low income programs. Most electric utilities
expanded their CAPs in their 1999 restructuring plans or subsequent settlements. See utility restructuring updates.
Note: Leveraging reports do not always give a complete statewide picture. Some resources are not reported through leveraging or are under reported.
