CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – Appalachian Power and Wheeling Power are asking regulators to approve a request that would increase customers’ bills by four percent or more.
The filing with the West Virginia Public Service Commission seeks reimbursement of past and continuing costs of fuel and purchased power. The companies are seeking a $61.5 million increase for the difference between the amount currently being collected and projected expenditures through the next annual filing period.
If approved, the rates would kick in on July 1.
