Action alert – Tell the Mayor to Reject the New Settlement with Pepco and Exelon!

Dear concerned DC residents,

On Friday the D.C. Public Service Commission (PSC) proposed a settlement offer to Mayor Bowser and the Office of People’s Council (OPC) that removes rate protections for D.C. residents. If the mayor and Office of People’s Counsel accept this bad deal it means Exelon will take over Pepco and your monthly electric bill will increase.

Tell Mayor Bowser and OPC not to sign off on this bad deal. Go to http://www.powerdc.org/ and click on the “Take Action” button to send a message to the Mayor, the Office of People’s Counsel, and the City Council.

Per the PSC’s decision, the settling parties have 14 days to either accept or reject the agreement. This is our last chance to stop Exelon.

The initial settlement included $25 million dollars meant to protect residential customers from expected rate increases. This protection is not included in the PSC’s alternative settlement. The PSC’s terms will allow the money to be allocated in the next rate increase. This means it could end up anywhere.

In Baltimore, BG&E has raised its rates four times since its takeover by Exelon. We can’t let that happen here.

We need to stop this bad deal and we need your help today!

Thank you,

The PowerDC Coalition
