PSC Seeks Comments on Utility Billing Statements

The Office of People’s Council circulated this consumer alert on proposed changes to pepco billing statements.  Those of you with solar are aware that it is very difficult to understand how much power you are being credited for during a given billing cycle.  If you have ideas on how pepco’s billing statement could be improved, please see the info below on how to comment.  The initial proposals floated by the PSC don’t seem to deal with improving bill readability for solar producers.  If you want others to see your comments, please feel free to post them below in the comments box, or on the DCSUN listserve (www.dcsun.org).  In case the link below doesn’t work, you can also click HERE.
