PUC approves affordable utility restoration
The George Wiley Center turned out in force at the Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission (PUC)  Tuesday morning in what has become an annual tradition: Encouraging the  commission to enable affordable utility service restoration for Rhode  Islanders currently shut off from gas or electric service. As it has in  the last nine years, the PUC adopted policies that will allow those who  are behind on their utility bills to restore service for a deposit of 10  percent of what is owed.
