As a result of the merger, customers are seeing improved efficiency, reliability and a broad array of other benefits. Today, the Court upheld the Public Service Commission's order, resolving all legal challenges in the District of Columbia and enabling us to remain focused on providing safe, reliable and affordable energy to all of our customers.
