So far, more than 5000 residents have sent postcards to the Public Service Commission (PSC) requesting that they deny Pepco’s rate increase request. Four thousand were hand-delivered to the PSC in March.
Here’s the message: "As a District resident in our struggling economy, I need your help to protect the money I've earned from an unfair, $39.7 million electric rate increase. I should not be required to pay more for unreliable service and to increase Pepco's profits. Hold the company accountable, by demanding that it demonstrate reliability before you approve a raise. Deny Pepco's $39.7 million rate increase request."
The PSC needs to hear from more DC residents. If you haven’t responded yet, send this message electronically or write to the DC PSC at 1333 H St., NW, Ste. 200, West Tower, Washington, DC 20005.
AARP DC is working to ensure that Pepco provides reliable service you can count on because as a customer, you place your trust in your service providers along with your hard-earned money and you don’t expect to be taken for granted.
A couple months ago, AARP DC commissioned a survey to help us understand the views of 50+ District residents regarding utility affordability, smart meters, power restoration after storms and consumer protections.
