Maryland residents outraged by Pepco's response following the June 29 derecho will have a chance to voice their opinions.

The Maryland Public Service Commission will hold a series of public hearings to address the power outages that left thousands without electricity for a week.

Two meetings will be held for Pepco customers. The first will be held August 7 in the third floor hearing room at the Montgomery County Office Building in Rockville.
