“Dear PoPville,

We are currently experiencing our 4th power outage this summer – each and every one happening without any storm or weather event. My neighborhood, a vibrant residential and growing commercial district along 11th Street, is plagued by these seemingly random outages. It takes Pepco several hours (usually 6-12) to restore power, but whatever fix they do is never lasting. We had an outage yesterday, and here we are again today – no power.

Please, what can be done to have this finally fixed? I’ve lived in my home for 6 years, and we have constantly had Pepco issues, but never this often or persistent. It’s like we’re living in a 3rd world country.”
