Our DC is also opposing a demand for a %5 billion taxpayer subsidy to pay for burying power lones along with the rate hike. OurDC presented numbers showing how PEPCO could pay to bury their own power lines unsing only money they already have but seem to only use for stockholder profits and executive salaries and bonuses.

At the conclusion of the protest most of the folks OurDC brought to the Wilson Building went inside to let city officials know in person what they think of PEPCO’s outrageous demands for more money after terrible service and obscene profits.
