Pa. A.G. concerned with spikes in electricty bills

Kathleen Kane asks consumers to be proactive

HARRISBURG, Pa. - Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane says she's concerned with the spike in consumer electricity bill this winter.

The Office of Attorney General's Bureau of Consumer Protection says it has received hundreds of calls and complaints from consumers regarding dramatic increases in their electricity bills. Many of the affected consumers had recently switched to variable-rate pricing.

"These spikes in the price of electricity are alarming and have put many consumers, especially the poor and elderly, in a dire situation," Attorney General Kane said. "It is my duty to protect consumers and act on their behalf. We are looking at these price increases and will be prepared to take action to protect affected consumers."

Kane is urging consumers to be proactive and submit their complaints quickly, along with documentation.

You can learn how to submit a complaint by heading over to the Attorney General's web site.
