PSC seeks input on how to improve energy grid
The Maryland Public Service Commission is seeking public input about how to improve the state’s electric distribution systems.
The commission plans to hold a series of public meetings and work groups about topics such as alternative energy sources, affordability, options for consumers and ways technology can improve the electric grid.
At the end of what will likely be a two-year process, the commission expects to have clearer priorities and action points for electricity providers to improve their operations.
The initiative builds on a plan Pepco was required to submit to the commission that details how it will transform its distribution system in the future as a condition of approval of its 2015 merger with Exelon Corp.
Pepco also was required to provide $500,000 for the commission to contract with a consultant to work on these issues.
