MoCo to hold hearing on Pepco reliability

By Washington Post editors

Montgomery County will hold a public hearing Wednesday to seek customer comments on their experiences with Pepco outages and their overall level of satisfaction with the utility's service.

The hearing will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Stella Werner Council Office Building, 100 Maryland Avenue in Rockville.

The meeting is the outgrowth of a Pepco Work Group created by Montgomery County Executive Isiah Leggett (D), to investigate Pepco’s service throughout the county.

A Washington Post study found that Pepco's reliability problems throughout the region go beyond storm outages.

Registration for speakers is on a first-come, first-served basis and the number of speakers is limited to 50. Speakers must pre-register by calling 240-777-3764. Each speaker will have a maximum of three minutes to address the audience.

Want to submit a written comment? You can do this through Jan. 6 to the Montgomery County Office of Consumer Protection by sending an e-mail to with “Pepco Comment” in the subject line. Elected officials should file written comments.

YOUR TAKE: Are you going to the Pepco hearing this evening? Have you been affected by power outages?

Pepco customers, if you’ve lost power recently, tell us which neighborhood you were in and a little bit about your experience. If you’re going to the hearing tonight, join the conversation this evening by commenting below or by using #Pepcolightsout on Twitter.

The word 'reliability' in the same headline with PEPCO is an oxymoron!
