Pepco Scheduled Power Outage Monday (Memorial Day)


“Dear PoPville,

I’m curious if any readers received notification of a scheduled power outage on Monday (Memorial Day)?

My apartment building located in Adams Morgan received notification yesterday saying the outage is between 8:30 to 5pm.

I spoke to a Pepco customer representative and I also spoke to a regional representative. They both were sketchy about information saying the power outage will affect the Washington region (they did not provide any neighborhood or street names, etc.). When asked if the service interruption could be rescheduled for Tuesday, May 26th Pepco replied no because the information had already been sent to dispatch. They also could not provide any information on what repairs or improvements were being worked on.”
