OPC Seeking Additional Community Hearing on Pepco Rate Increase
Whenever a utility seeks to raise your rates, it is my constant belief that ratepayers must a have place at the table. It is critical for you to receive adequate notice and ample opportunities to weigh in on how any change in rates might affect your quality of life. I do not believe consumers have been afforded adequate notice in the case of Pepco’s request to increase rates by $76.8 million. Therefore, the opportunity to present public input in person has been limited.
Please see the letter I have sent to the Public Service Commission on your behalf to remedy this situation.
