County Files Comments with PSC on Reliability Standards

Montgomery County has filed comments with the Maryland Public Service Commission in response to the PSC’s proposed revision of the state regulation regarding service provided by electric companies. This rule making procedure (RM43) is separate from the ongoing investigation into Pepco’s reliability (case 9240). To sort out the different cases and timelines, see the special Pepco edition of my newsletter.

The County’s eight-page response regarding definition of an acceptable level of reliability for Pepco addresses “inadequate” discretionary civil penalties. It says that these penalties in no way compare to the financial hardships experienced by the community. The comments reflect the frustration we have heard loud and clear from our constituents.

Check out the full text of Montgomery County’s response.
