Appalachian Power Petitions PSC For Rate Increase

Appalachian Power Company has announced environmental improvements planned for three coal-fired power plants in West Virginia totaling $384 million in hopes of reaching new federal clean air compliance levels.


Appalachian Power and Wheeling Power have asked the state Public Service Commission to allow the companies to raise rates on their customers to recover the costs for the improvements to the plants’ ash handling and wastewater discharge systems.


The PSC filing, which includes Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity, seeks a rate increase of 41 cents a month on the average customer’s bill.
