DC Still Fighting Pepco’s Unfair Increase Proposal

Pepco’s still pushing for an unfair rate increase and we’re still fighting against it.

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.
