    Hi, I am a local resident of Pennsylvania. We are in dire need of competition for one Allegheny Power company, who has a monopoly on our state. They are extremely rude and hard to contact. It seems like one of those companies that sets traps for you to fail, and have to pay higher and higher security deposits that you'll likely never see again. On top of everything they don't do a very good job. There are constant outages and it takes them so long to fix it. In terms of needing competition, our area would be a great place for a smart new company to set up shop.
