The Maryland Public Service Commission will hold a public conference over the course of two days to gauge the impact that COVID-19 has had on, among other things, "consumer protections," in the electric and other utility industries.
While most of the focus of a notice concerning the proceeding (PC 53) involves utility-related issues, including payment-related issues, the PSC did invite comments on the following broader question: "What regulatory actions would the utility, or other parties, suggest the Commission consider to mitigate and continue monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 on Maryland utilities and ratepayers?"
The PSC will conduct a virtual legislative-style hearing beginning at 10:00 a.m. on August 27 and 28, 2020 concerning the proceeding
