OPC Encourages Consumer Participation in November DCPSC Community Hearings on Proposed WGL-AltaGas Merger (Formal Case No. 1142)
The Office of the People's Counsel alerts the public that the DC Public Service Commission (DCPSC) has scheduled four community hearings on the proposed merger of WGL Holdings, Inc., the parent company of Washington Gas, and AltaGas Ltd, a Canadian-based utility company.
OPC believes community input is critical to the DCPSC in making a decision on the companies' merger application. OPC has provided testimony in opposition to the merger application, as filed, stating that it would not be in the public interest and would cause harm to District ratepayers. Click here to see why OPC urges the Commission to reject the merger.
Individuals and groups should contact OPC if you need assistance with testimony or would like OPC to make a presentation to your community group. Details on the DCPSC hearings are below:
