       Protest – A formal pleading that states your objections and concerns.  Filing a Protest will make you a party to the proceeding. 

       Petition to Intervene – A request to become a party to the case by showing a direct interest in the proceeding. 

       Objection Letter or Comments – A written statement of your concerns without becoming a party to the proceeding.

We have provided samples of each response type below:

As shown in the samples, Protests, Petitions to Intervene, and Objection Letters and Comments should include the name of the proceeding and the docket number.  Use only the name and docket number for the proceeding that you wish to participate in, East or West. 

  • Protests and Petitions to Intervene should be mailed to the Secretary of the PA Public Utility Commission and copied to the Administrative Law Judges, Transource Pennsylvania, LLC (the applicant), and Counsel representing the applicant. Please see the Pennsylvania Bulletin Notice or the OCA samples above for these names and addresses. The deadline for filing is Tuesday, February 20, 2018.

  • Objection Letters and Comments should be mailed to the Secretary of the PA Public Utility Commission.

If you do not wish to file any of these documents, an opportunity for Public Input at a Public Input Hearing will also be provided during the course of the proceeding.  We will have more information on participating in a Public Input Hearing once the Public Input Hearing date(s) and location(s) are determined.
