Capital Energy PA LLC d/b/a Sunrise Power & Gas confirmed that it has returned any remaining customers in Pennsylvania to default service
As exclusively first reported by EnergyChoiceMatters.com in March, Capital Energy had stated an intent to exit the Pennsylvania market, but noted that it would provide advance notice of its planned exit to its then-remaining 43 commercial electric customers in Pennsylvania. Capital had further stated that these customers had been acquired through brokers, who were also provided notice, and Capital had stated in March that, "Because those brokers have a financial incentive to retain those customers, it is Capital’s expectation that most, if not all, of those customers will have engaged in a new contract prior to any potential transfer to default service."
Capital has now provided, "notice to the Commission [Pa. PUC] that as of June 7, 2022, Capital has returned its few remaining electricity customers to default service and it no longer serves any customers in Pennsylvania."
Capital did not specify how many customers were dropped to default service versus those who switched away to another supplier prior to the drop.
As previously reported, a notice sent to the Pennsylvania customers by Capital Energy stated that, "[T]he present business climate has forced us to focus on our initiatives in other areas."
Capital Energy PA LLC remains active in other market(s), such as Texas
