This morning PEPCO put up many temporary no parking signs on my block…. Only problem is the permit is for 3 spots on a different block, not a full street and not my block.
Do I still have to obey these?“
“As the summer months quickly approach, and customers traditionally begin using more energy and become more reliant on their electricity to make their homes, businesses and lives more comfortable, Pepco reminds customers to be aware of scammers who may attempt to take advantage of them in new and different ways.

Interested to know if this is a weird fluke with my mail or a more general new problem with the local delivery system. I got this returned mail yesterday, but I’m pretty sure PEPCO puts the correct address on their payment slips, Read More
Arielle recounts the brutal scene last night:
“Today an @PepcoConnect subcontractor installed the wrong transformer on our block (after handing out notices saying this would be happening in September). It created a power surge and blew out peoples appliances.
At my house, Read More

From the DC Office of the Attorney General’s Office:
“Attorney General Karl A. Racine today announced that the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) and the Office of the People’s Counsel (OPC) filed a complaint against Pepco for systemically mishandling community solar projects, potentially overcharging more than 6,800 District households on their monthly electric bills, and undermining the District’s efforts to meet its clean energy goals.

I live in a rowhouse that’s been converted into two condo units. Pepco runs three electrical meters to the property, one to each unit and the third to the common area, which is a small foyer with a single interior light fixture. We barely use this light (last month the actual usage was zero), but every month, the bill for the common meter includes a “Customer Charge” of $38.75. Read More

Sunday morning APN wrote us around 7:45am: “I saw a massive explosion on 4th and Mass Ave NW this morning. Fireball as tall as the building. Maybe a manhole?”
Phil wrote: “I think we live in the same building. For reals shook it. I heard the concussion and then the secondary echo off nearby buildings. Massive.” Read More

Our Adams Morgan condo has been without power since Saturday afternoon–we have lights and a few outlets, but one of the two incoming lines is dead and as a result, we are without heat and hot water.
We had an electrician on-site on Saturday–he told us to call Pepco. Pepco came out, took some readings, and told us to get our building electrician involved. That electrician came out yesterday and said they couldn’t do anything until Pepco removed the locks on our meter and the three meters connected to ours (it’s a medium-sized, self-managed condo building).

I have a PEPCO related question. I live in a small, four unit condo building with identical 1.5 bedroom (roughly 700 sq ft) condos. I got a PEPCO bill this month that was more than double my previous bill ($114). I have friends living in 2,000 sq ft that are paying less. Read More
