Pepco hearing tonight in Montgomery
As part of its continuing investigation into Pepco's performance during the recent summer storms that left thousands without power, the Maryland Public Service Commission is slated to hold a public hearing at 6 p.m. tonight in Rockville.
The meeting will be held in the Montgomery County Council's Stella Wener Office Building, at 100 Maryland Ave., in the third floor Council Hearing Room. It also will be televised on County Cable Montgomery. In addition to county residents, eight members of the Montgomery County Council, including Council President Nancy Floreen and Vice President Valerie Ervin, will be among those testifying.
This is the second public hearing held by the PSC. A third hearing will be held in Prince George's County at 6 p.m. Thursday. That meeting will be held at the Hallam Theatre on the campus of Prince George's Community College, 301 Largo Road in Largo.
Pepco has been on the defensive since storms left thousands across the area without power -- some for several days. Earlier this month, the utility released a new plan to improve service reliability. Even with the criticism, Pepco officials maintain they did the best they could to restore service as quickly as possible.
