WVA OK regulators continued operation of 3 power plants

The original order in the case resulted in a rate increase that would add about 38 cents to the bill of a residential customer who uses 1,000 kilowatt hours per month. After completion of construction of all the required upgrades, the increase would be about $2.64 per month. Further proceedings would be required for any additional amount resulting from Tuesday’s order. Regulators in Kentucky and Virginia rejected rate-increase requests involving the three plants, which served customers in those states.

The request granted Tuesday by the state Public Service Commission involves three coal-fired power plants operated by Appalachian Power Co. and Wheeling Power Co. The companies are upgrading the John Amos plant in Winfield, the Mountaineer plant in New Haven and the Mitchell plant in Moundsville to comply with federal environmental regulations. The PSC said in a news release that the order won’t immediately affect West Virginia customers’ power bills. ___

This story was corrected to show the example monthly rate increase would be 38 cents until required upgrades are made and $2.64 afterward.
