The Public Service Commission is allowing Delmarva Power to move forward with the rate hike request it submitted in August. Delmarva hiked its nearly $25 million August rate increase proposal by nearly $7 million in October.


Delmarva Power is spending this week defending its rate increase request. It’s asking to add nearly $10 to the average monthly utility bill. But some critics of the request say the hike is too high.
