Rep Kowalko sounds wake-up call to Delmarva’s $$$ crushing rate increase request.

Dear all,

I’ve petitioned the Public Service Commission to intervene in the two Delmarva Power rate increase request dockets listed here. I have been granted intervener status in both cases and hope to be able to mitigate some of the economic burdens the ratepayers and business users will be burdened with.

I have intervened in more than a half-dozen cases previously with varying degrees of success on behalf of the electric and gas users. I believe that the amount of increase being sought by DP&L is excessive and would be punitive to middle-class and poor users as well as the small business community. It could also disaffect large industrial users and stifle job growth and economic progress. But it will require quite a bit of effort on my part and that of the Delaware Public Advocate’s office to influence the PSC commissioners in that regard. Our efforts, on your behalf, will also be more achievable if all of the members of the public and the business community participate in the process with public comments and by attending public comment sessions in substantial numbers. We are fortunate to have a new Public Advocate, Drew Slater, who is committed to working on your behalf and his office and I will try to establish a level playing field and dedicated advocacy that benefits your interests. Please watch this site for updates with regard to public meeting dates, times and locations and please attend and speak out on your own behalf.

Representative John Kowalko
