Have you shared your opposition to the Exelon-Pepco merger?

DC Environmental Network has made its position clear on the proposed Exelon-Pepco merger: Absolutely not.

DCEN and many others assert that the merger would hurt poor and middle class DC residents, would stall the city's energy efficiency progress, and would decimate local control over our electricity.

The good news is that are several opportunities for residents and other stakeholders to voice their opposition to the Exelon plan.   Power DC urges residents and organizations to sign on to the declaration opposing the merger.   Signers on include Brookland Solar Coop, DC Chapter of Sierra Club, DC For Democracy, and DC Tenants' Advocacy Coalition (TENAC).

Power DC also offers merger opponents the opportunity to easily share their view with the DC Public Service Commission via Tell the PSC you oppose the Exelon merger.

The Public Service Commission is holding a public hearing on the proposed merger Tuesday, January 20 at 6:00 pm at the DC Community College (801 North Capitol St NE in the Conference Room).   Learn more and register to testify before the DCPSC.

The DC Council's Committee on Transportation & Environment (Ward 3 CM Mary Cheh, chair) is holding an oversight roundtable on "The Potential Environmental Effects of Exelon's Proposed Acquisition of Pepco" Friday, January 23 at 11:00 am in the Council Chamber (JAWB, 1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW).   The public is encouraged to testify; hearing and registration details are online.

Testimony tips are on the Power DC website.
