PUC Postpones Pennsylvania Statewide Sustainable Energy Board Annual Meeting; Reschedules for Feb. 23




February 08, 2017

HARRISBURG – Due to the impending weather forecast for central Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Sustainable Energy Board (PASEB), in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC), will postpone its annual meeting originally scheduled for tomorrow.  The meeting now will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, Feb. 23, 2017, in Hearing Room 4 of the Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North St., Harrisburg. 

The PASEB was originally established by the Commission in 1999 to provide oversight, guidance and technical assistance to the regional sustainable energy boards that fund projects such as wind farms, solar power systems, smart thermostat programs and the construction of buildings using energy efficient technologies.  On Aug. 7, 2003, the Commission issued an order further defining the role of the PASEB. That order charged the PASEB with holding an annual meeting; enhancing communications among the four funds and state agencies; and establishing bylaws and a “best business practices” model.

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.
