Pepco Rates To Increase For Better Reliability

WASHINGTON - It doesn't take a snowstorm for Pepco customers to lose power. Day to day, the utility is among the least reliable in the nation. Now the company wants customers to foot the bill for improvements by raising rates. Yet Pepco's not making any guarantees if another big snowstorm hits. Despite any improvements, Pepco Region President Thomas Graham said "that doesn't make the system bulletproof." If we get another major winter storm, he suggested people need to "level their expectations" about how long they'll be without power.
