Senator Argall’s TV Report Highlights Energy Pool

HARRISBURG – State Senator David G. Argall (R-29) will discuss the energy crisis facing Pennsylvania and the opportunities for businesses and non-profit organizations to join “energy pools” with special guest Bob Carl, Executive Director of the Schuylkill Chamber, during his October television report.

The Schuylkill Chamber of Commerce is participating in an Energy Pool program through a buying consortium to deal with PPL deregulation scheduled for January 1, 2010. Currently, 17 Chambers statewide are participating in the pool, within the PPL service area.

“These days we are all trying to find ways to save money, and that includes businesses and non-profit organizations,” said Argall. “Many of us are facing considerable cost increases for energy from 25 to 40 percent and many organizations can be helped by the energy pool consortium,” Argall added.
