 Take Action Now: Speak Against Exelon-Pepco Merger 

6930 Carroll Avenue, #340, Takoma Park, MD 20912; 301-270-6477nirsnet@nirs.orgwww.nirs.org
We urge you to support our colleagues at Nuclear Information and Resource Service and Beyond Nuclear's call to action to stop the Exelon/Pepco merger.  They make a very compelling, but almost hidden argument about how our area ratepayers may very much be on the hook for future massive losses Exelon will be confronted with when they deal with their aging nuclear infrastructure. Aside from our agenda to promote a renewable and safer energy industries, CSBC feels that our sustainable businesses allies should not be vulnerable to future rate hikes to cover Exelon's very likely future losses from their nuclear time bomb business model. 


If you live or work in DC, tell the DC Public Service Commission to reject this takeover. Our colleagues at PowerDC have made it easy to do so here
If you're in Maryland and have difficulty submitting comments on the PSC site, 
please sign the petition created by our friends at Public Citizen here

We encourage you to talk to your officemates, your neighbors, and everybody you know who lives or works in DC and Maryland about this issue.
