D.C.'s Public Service Commission says it will hold a public hearing to let residents weigh in on Pepco's performance following last week's storm.

The Commission requires Pepco to provide a written restoration report within 21 days after the end of a major service outage. The report is supposed to contain details about the causes of the outage, the number of customers affected, and an hour-by-hour timeline of the utility's restoration efforts.

Then Pepco officials will be required to attend a public hearing and explain the company's performance. The commission says residents will be able to raise their own concerns about Pepco's efforts.

At the peak after the storm, more than 66,000 customers in the District were without power. Maryland's Public Service Commission is planning its own investigation of Pepco's response.
