For Immediate Release
WASHINGTON, D.C. - (March 24, 2017) Pepco filed a request for a base rate
adjustment of $68.6 million, which is about $7.37 per month for the typical
residential customer, to help recover the company's costs in Maryland to
improve reliability and overall customer service in the region.
In 2016, Pepco invested $138.3 million in distribution
infrastructure enhancements such as projects to increase and maintain the
reliability of the distribution system and proactive system upgrades and
additions in order to meet the needs of the families and businesses we serve.
Both as an economic engine and a provider of reliable electric service, the
company plays a critical role in the Maryland community.
"Our focus is to provide the best possible value to our
customers and to make the region a better place to live and work," said Pepco
Region President, Donna Cooper. "We continue to make improvements on behalf of
our customers, and continue to see a steady uptick in the reliability of our
system and the responsiveness of our customer service teams."
The request is subject to approval by the Maryland Public
Service Commission. If approved as requested, a bill for the typical
residential customer using 872 kilowatt hours per month would increase by 5.52

base rate adjustment request can contact our Customer Care Center at
