I had the same thing happen to me on P St. in Truxton Circle a couple of days ago at about 5:30 pm. There were two sets of two men going door to door. They had on blue jackets with yellow reflective vests. They had some ID badges on but I didn’t really see them well. One had a clipboard with the names and accompanying address of everyone on the block. When I asked whether he was really from Pepco, he told me they were actually from Constellation Energy, the wholesale provider of electricity, as he explained to me. He wanted me to get my last bill to show him the account number and kW usage, so I could enroll in the DC Customer Choice program and save one cent per kW. I told him I didn’t have a bill since I just moved in, which was true. He asked me to go online and get the info. I told him I didn’t have the internet yet, which was also true. He left me his name (Ryan) and number on the back of random business card, but said he’d also be by next week if I had the info by then. He was a white guy, maybe 30ish, black rimmed glasses, like the old Verizon “Can you hear me now?” guy, but a little trimmer. Maybe I’ll give that number a call and see where it goes.
