“Dear PoP,

Can you find out why the power is out on several blocks in NW and NE. Ilive at 15th and Upshur and lost power last night about 8pm. The power came on about 1am and then went out again at 6:30am. Is there a reason for this? I know that a few weeks ago, the building I work in lost power for about 3 or 4 days in a row and we were on back up.”

I’ve definitely seen a few emails and tweets about this. I saw the following on a listserv:

“Seems there are continuous problems w/power outages in this area. For help, contact the Office of the People’s Counsel, your utility attorneys who protect the interests of the ratepayers in DC. 202/727-3071. Herb Jones is the Customer Services Mgr. They will investigate and assist w/getting Pepco to resolve the problem”

Have others been having power problems? Do you think it’s because everyone is putting their Air Conditioning on?
