Washington, DC – The Office of the People’s Counsel for the District of Columbia (OPC) has filed testimony requesting that the DC Public Service Commission (PSC) reject the vast majority ($47.3 million) of Washington Gas Light’s (WGL) $53 million proposed rate increase and urges the PSC to closely examine the impact the rate increase will have on the most financially vulnerable DC consumers.
