Delmarva Power Seeks Electric Rate Hike In Md.

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — Delmarva Power has asked the Maryland Public Service Commission to approve an increase in electric delivery rates in the state.

The $25.2 million request, filed Friday, would mean a 5.6 percent increase on a typical Maryland residential customer’s bill. The increase would be effective starting in July.

The utility said the increase would be used to bolster efforts to support the additional resources that were needed to restore service to customers after Hurricane Irene in August, in addition to other efforts.

    “The utility said the increase would be used to bolster efforts to support the additional resources that were needed to restore service to customers after Hurricane Irene in August, in addition to other efforts.” Pure spin BS. They want to bolster their bottom line. Restoring power is a “cost of doing business”. Time to regulate all of these companies.
