    [Mr.] Dinegar of the Greater Washington Board of Trade called the request by advocates for a strong Customer Investment Fund, akin to “extortion.”
    As a Pepco shareholder, you need to know that the all-cash deal means that even the Pepco executives do not believe in the future of Exelon–otherwise they would take shares of stock in their future owners, Exelon. Shareholders like myself will take the cash and find wiser investments in the energy marketplace. Like solar and wind!!
    Also, as a DC Resident, I take offence to idea that I, as a resident I ask for a larger rebate from a private company that benefits from a public monopoly. “Extorting Exelon” sounds like an oxymoron!
    Best analogy would be that as a hypothetical member of the Board of Trade, I accused Mr. Dininger of “extorting” my membership dues!
