WASHINGTON - Summary
Last Friday Earthjustice filed, on behalf of Sierra Club and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, an appeal of the Maryland Public Service Commission's approval of Exelon's take-over of PEPCO and Delmarva Power. On May 15, the Commission approved this acquisition in a 3-2 split decision. Earthjustice contends that the Commission's majority decision is flawed because it failed to properly consider the harm to Maryland and ignored statutory directives.
