Another Report Rips Pepco

The report goes on to say the plan may not work because enough study was not put into it.

Montgomery County Council Vice President Roger Berliner has been one of Pepco's loudest critics, and he says the latest report just continues to show the utilities leadership is lacking. But he says blame for Pepco's troubles doesn't just lie with the utility -- the Public Service Commission must also share some of the burden.

"There's not a single representative on the commission from Pepco's service territory. There are four from BG&E, and none from Pepco. That simply can't be," he says.

Berliner's council district includes Bethesda and Potomac, two areas that were hardest-hit by power outages following storms the past two years.
