PSC Chairman Julie Brown Highlights 2017 National Consumer Protection Week


TALLAHASSEE — With social media reshaping how news is received, the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is launching a Twitter campaign, #PSCCelebratesConsumersNCPW, for National Consumer Protection Week, March 5-11. Each day, the campaign will feature a consumer tip from PSC Commissioners and highlight the PSC’s educational activities.

“The National Consumer Protection Week is an important opportunity for the Florida PSC to provide education and awareness about utility services and avoiding potential scams,” said PSC Chairman Julie Brown.  “We hope to provide valuable tips and information to ensure consumers receive safe and reliable utility service.”

During the 19th Annual NCPW, the PSC will make presentations to consumers in Winter Springs, Winter Park, Orlando, Hollywood, Miramar, and Hallandale Beach, showing them how to save money through energy and water conservation and how to sign up for the Lifeline Assistance telephone and broadband discount program, if they qualify. Presentation locations and times can be found on Twitter and on the PSC website, www.floridapsc.com

Look for #PSCCelebratesConsumersNCPW on Twitter to see the Commissioner consumer tip videos, as well as pictures and news from each consumer visit.  NCPW Commissioner consumer tips can also be found here.
