“Pennsylvania’s utilities represent tens-of-thousands of family-supporting and community-oriented jobs, with growth and training opportunities, good wages, and the satisfaction of knowing that you are serving your local communities. Additionally, these are systems and people we depend upon to keep our communities safe and healthy, and it is important that we do what we can to ensure that our utilities have the skilled personnel they need to meet the needs of today and tomorrow.”

Excerpt from a news release which accompanied the visit of PUC Chairman Gladys Brown to Thaddeus Stevens College in Lancaster yesterday highlighting the importance of education with regard to tomorrow’s utility workers.
