Did you know Pepco wants to increase residential rates?

Pepco has proposed an increase in rates and charges to residential electricity customers.   According to a June 2009 fact sheet,
Pepco’s proposal seeks an increase of nearly 6.1% in residential customers’ overall monthly bills.   The typical bill for a Standard Offer Service ("SOS") residential customer who does not choose an electric generation supplier using 750 kilowatt-hours of electricity per month would increase by about $6.00.

The Public Service Commission is holding community meetings to elicit resident feedback on the proposal.   Two meetings remain:

  • Thursday, November 19 at 6:30 pm at Hillcrest Recreation Center (3100 Denver St SE)
  • Friday, November 20 at 10:00 am at D.C. Public Service Commission (1333 H St NW, Hearing Room 7th Floor East Tower)

Green DMV has started a petition opposing the increases.

Finally, more about the rate increase and what service providers can do to comment on the proposal is here.
