Allegheny county councilman Matt Drozd has requested an investigation into Duquesne light by the public utility commission. The request comes after a string or recent power outages across the region. Drozd said he feels like there have been more power outages since Duquesne light was sold to a foreign company, and wants to ensure the proper resources are being invested in the region. Councilman Drozd says he has been unable to reach personnel at Duquesne light and said the county's 911 center has had problem reaching the power company in the past.
