Pittsburgh’s population of about 311,647 makes it the second most populous city in the state, second to Philadelphia which has a population of about 1,547,297. It’s also the 61st most populous city in the United States.
Pittsburgh has history of being known as “the Steel City,” but it’s also big in the education and technology industries.
The city, like most of the state, also has a history in the coal mines.
All these characteristics of the city only make it bigger in the energy field which is pretty fitting seeing as its one of only a handful of states to be deregulated in the energy field.
Being deregulated means many of its business owners have the right to choose the cheapest electricity rates for their commercial business.

The city is home to several colleges and universities such as Duquesne University, University of Pittsburgh, Carlow University and Robert Morris University, just to name a few.
Three of the four main professional sports have a team that makes its home in Pittsburgh.
The Pittsburgh Penguins represent the NHL. The Pittsburgh Pirates represent the MLB and the Pittsburgh Steelers represent the NFL. The Steelers are one of four teams alive in the 2010-2011 season still competing for the Super Bowl.
