Every day, APPI Energy identifies the wide range of electricity supplier prices across Pennsylvania, and the lowest prices available from reliable, competing suppliers. APPI Energy offers an online Price Finder tool that tracks electricity supplier prices. “In a three-step process that takes only a few minutes, PA Chamber members can select their utility to view electricity prices in their specific location,” says Moore. The website provides multiple competitive price offers from multiple suppliers. PA Chamber members who are currently locked into electricity supplier contracts can use the Price Finder tool to take advantage of today’s low energy prices in contracts that begin when their current contracts expire. “As we look out to the future, we know that we have to continue to stay ahead of the curve, to develop things like the Electricity Price Finder to make it easier for our customers to do business,” says Kathy Kiernan, senior vice president of APPI Energy.

The Pennsylvania Chamber is leading the way, helping employers to prepare,” says Kiernan. “Knowing how challenging it is to find qualified employees, APPI Energy supports PA Chamber Workforce Development efforts by attending events, financially contributing to programs and engaging with employers on different levels.” Carrie Shepard from APPI Energy met Mike Rowe at the PA Chamber’s Workforce Summit in 2016, where APPI Energy was a sponsor.
