The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has created a new interactive tool that allows consumers to shop using side-by-side comparisons in an effort to help customers who want to pick electric and natural gas suppliers.
Todd Snitchler, PUCO chairman, says the new website will eliminate the confusion surrounding energy choice and equip consumers with the information needed to make the best decicion.
The group that regulates Ohio's utilities sent over 30 of its staff to a conference in Orlando before the holidays, costing utility customers $34,660. Dayton Daily News reporter Laura Bischoff examined the expenses surrounding the trip. In an interview for PoliticsOhio, she tells Emily McCord that the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) is a powerful board and that the public often doesn't know how their money is spent and where it goes.
