Sorry to learn of the outages.

There isn't much than an individual can do about Pepco's distribution service, but you do have the right to choose the energy company that supplies the electricity delivered to you by Pepco.

Pepco's price for electricity supply for its typical residential customers (schedule R) is now 28% above market in DC and 16% above market in Maryland. Choose a low cost supplier and you can lower your Pepco bill by a significant amount.

To understand how this is done and to see the price difference, go to www.lowerelectricityrates.com/pepco . It takes about 4 minutes and costs nothing to lower the price of your electricity supply.
