Pepco undeserving of rate increase [Letter]

December 10, 2013

Here we go again. Wasn't it just about one year ago when Pepco was crying for a rate increase? Now for 2014, Pepco desires yet another unwarranted, undeserved and unnecessary rate increase. Pepco continues to fail the public during times that require timely and efficient restoration services during unwarranted outages.

Pepco customers deserve better for the high rates that we pay now, and I must agree with Montgomery County Councilman Roger Berliner and just flat say no to any more Pepco requests for rate increases. The Maryland Public Service Commission must deny Pepco's request for this rate increase.

Perhaps management changes should be and need to be made at Pepco's highest level. Whether or not that happens, the PSC should deny the utility's proposed rate increase.
