Pepco, Delmarva Ask Maryland PSC to Consider Utility-Owned Generation
Pepco and Delmarva Power have informed the Maryland PSC that they may petition for reconsideration of PSC’s decision to issue an RFP for up to 1,500 MW of new generation under long-term contracts, stating that the PSC should consider utility-built generation to meet any identified capacity needs.

In a letter to the PSC, the Pepco Holdings utilities said that it was unclear if the Commission’s notice issuing the RFP constituted final action subject to judicial review. The utilities sought guidance from PSC on this issue, and reserved the right to file a formal petition for reconsideration if no clarification on the review ability of the RFP notice is provided.
