WASHINGTON -- The Maryland Public Service Commission is asking some tough questions about BGE's preparedness for Hurricane Irene.
The utility company predicted as many as 750,000 people lost power during the hurricane, some for a full week, while crews scrambled to meet the heavy demand. The commission wants to know why it took so long.
It is holding two hearings, one in Towson Sept. 27 and one in Baltimore Oct. 11, and encourages public comment.
Meanwhile, several lawmakers have said the Maryland General Assembly should hold hearings of its own when it meets for a special session in October.
