Maurice Baldwin: Public Service commission does a disservice

Thank you Public Service Commission. Maybe you should change your name to Public Disservice Commission or BGE, of course we can do that for you. First came a customer charge of $7.50 per month to offset billing cost. Then SmartMeters. We will hold public meetings. I went to the one at Glen Burnie High School. What a joke. Tables set in a back hallway, not even in a room. Then rate increases up and up. Then a note from BGE allowing a small charge each month for ERI, electric reliability investment charge, to enhance the safety and reliability of electric distribution system. Now a letter telling me that since I do not want a SmartMeter I will be forced to pay $75 up front and $11 each...
