Infrastructure Enhancements

The Commission continues to monitor and initiate investments in energy and utility infrastructure improvements. Our goal is to ensure the safety, reliability, and sustainability of the city’s utility delivery systems.

Pepco's Capital Grid Project is a long-term electric utility initiative to address aging infrastructure, enhanced system resiliency, improved reliability, and load growth in the District of Columbia.

DC PLUG is a public-private partnership between Pepco and District Government agencies to improve electric service reliability and reduce the impact of storm-related outages in the District by placing vulnerable overhead distribution lines underground.

PROJECTpipes is a 40-year accelerated pipeline replacement program from Washington Gas to modernize the 1,200-mile natural gas distribution system in the District and enhance overall system resiliency, reliability, and safety for nearly 165,000 gas customers.
