UNDERSTANDING YOUR ELECTRIC BILL
Jul 23 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Electric rates soared this winter, leaving many households with sky-high electric bills without a way to pay them. Fortunately, Dalton “Buzz” Savidge, a retiree after forty years from PPL Electric Utilities, has volunteered to share his knowledge on ways to understand your bill and to shop for electric providers in a free workshop to be held at Union-Snyder Community Action Agency. Buzz is no longer associated with PPL, but having held six titles during his four-decade career at the company he has a thorough understanding of how to save on your electric bill. Buzz’s presentations at the Union-Snyder Community Action Agency will help PPL customers understand how to shop for electric providers as well as learn some of the details someone may not catch while shopping for providers. When asked if it is possible to save money if you shop, Buzz answered, “Yes! How much you save comes down to how much is paid per kilowatt hour and how much energy you use on a monthly or yearly basis.”

Some of the biggest mistakes people make when shopping are not having an understanding of fixed or variable rates, not knowing the expiration date of a fixed contract, being unaware of what an introductory rate may mean once a person has signed up, or being unsure of how cancellation fees work. All of these factors can have a determination as to whether your electric bill is reasonable or through the roof. An understanding of all of this can be gained by coming to one of Buzz’s presentations.

The presentation also provides PPL customers with insight as to the five key tips to know before shopping for an electric provider, and an important point a person should know after shopping.  Further elaboration on this information and why it is important to know this information before and after shopping is explained at the workshops.

Presentations are for public information and offered as a public service by Union-Snyder Community Action Agency, 713 Bridge Street, Selinsgrove on June 11 and July 23 at 10 am. Buzz asks that anyone in attendance brings a recent bill for their own use. For more information on the Electric Choice Workshops, please call (570) 374-0181.
