PSC to host public comment hearing for Appalachian Power case on February 29

Charleston, WV (WOAY) – The West Virginia Public Service Commission will accept public comments regarding a $37.2 million electricity rate increase proposal.  

Appalachian and Wheeling power companies asked the commission to greenlight an update to their environmental compliance surcharge, proposing a 1.68 percent increase in residential bills. 

If PSC approved the proposal, roughly 462,000 West Virginia residents would have seen a 2-dollar and 84-cent monthly increase on their electric bills beginning January 1.   

The public comment hearing will occur on February 29 at 5:00 pm in the PSC hearing room in Charleston. 

If you cannot attend the meeting in person, you can participate virtually or by phone.
