Pepco's four little problems

By washingtonpost.com editors

Recently we had our fifth power outage in as many weeks. It used to be said of the highly inefficient Soviet agricultural sector that it had four problems: fall, winter, spring and summer. Could one say that Pepco also has only four problems: snow, rain, wind and sun?

As usual the Post thinks regulation is the answer, no that's not the fix. Rather the Post should be candid and say that the area needs a new coal fired power plant. Why should WVA and rural VA be forced to put up with the pollution and eyesores so DC can have power.
Building another local power source would allow PEPCO to save hundreds of millions and then help to improve their delivery capability
