For Immediate Release
OCEAN CITY, Md. - Pepco Holdings, Inc. (PHI), the parent company of Delmarva Power, Atlantic City Electric and Pepco, will host more than 150 social service agency representatives from Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and Washington, D.C. at a daylong interactive summit at the Princess Royale Hotel in Ocean City, Md., on Wednesday, October 10.
The summit gives service providers valuable information and tools to better assist low-income electricity customers, many of whom have difficulty in paying their energy bills.
"The summit is an avenue through which PHI continues to solidify its partnership with the social service agencies that help our customers on a regular basis," said John Allen, Delmarva Power Vice President.
The summit includes workshops, exhibits and presentations from advocates at the local, state and national levels. The keynote speaker is David Fox, Executive Director of the National Low-Income Energy Consortium, a leading low-income assistance advocate.
Many of the workshops will address the challenges of dealing with energy prices that are higher than they were several years ago. While there are programs that help customers learn to use energy wisely and obtain financial assistance to pay energy bills, the goal of the summit is to make sure this information reaches those who need it.
The summit agenda follows this news release. The news media is invited to cover this event.
Delmarva Power, a public utility owned by Pepco Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: POM), provides safe and reliable energy to more than 500,000 electric delivery customers in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia and over 118,000 natural gas delivery customers in northern Delaware .
