Maryland Office of People’s Counsel revamps website

The Maryland Office of People’s Counsel has a new consumer-friendly website. While at the same address (www.opc.state.md.us), it has been totally re-designed. Consumers, community agencies and organizations will be able to find information on utility rates and services, consumer protections for utility customers, assistance for customers struggling to pay utility bills, and OPC’s testimony before the Public Service Commission and Maryland Legislature.

The new website also features in-depth information on current activities and issues before the MD Public Service Commission and federal agencies. New features such as “hot topics” and “public hearings” serve as quick reference to pending activities of the office.

“We have re-designed this website for easy access to useful and timely information on utility issues,” said Maryland People’s Counsel Paula Carmody. “We hope that Maryland consumers, and others interested in issues affecting utility consumers, will visit us and explore the new website.”

OPC recommends that you “register” on the home page if you would like to receive email notice of OPC’s press releases and alerts.
