PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION OF WEST VIRGINIA CHARLESTON
MONONGAHELA POWER COMPANY and THE POTOMAC
Petition to initiate the annual review and
update to the ENEC rates currently in effect.
On August 27, 2021, Monongahela Power Company and The Potomac Edison Company (jointly the Companies) filed their 2021 petition to initiate the annual review and update of Expanded Net Energy Cost (ENEC) rates. The Commission entered a final order in this case on December 21, 2021. Since that time, the Companies under-recovery balance for fuel costs has grown to $87.5 million. The large under-recovery balance must be addressed and customer rates may increase.
The Commission set a procedural schedule, including an evidentiary hearing to be held on March 24, 2022. The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Howard M. Cunningham Hearing Room at the Commission’s offices at 201 Brooks Street, Charleston, West Virginia. The Commission may increase the adjustable ENEC surcharge as a result of this hearing in order to avoid a larger increase after December 2022 when the rate would normally be adjusted.
Anyone desiring to protest should file a written protest as soon as possible although protests will be accepted throughout the pendency of this proceeding. All written protests should briefly state the reason for the protest. All protests should state the case name and number and be addressed to Karen Buckley, Acting Executive Secretary, P.O. Box 812, Charleston, West Virginia 25323.
