Energy rates to rise in W.Va.

July 02, 1998

The Public Service Commission of West Virginia has granted The Potomac Edison Company a $1 million increase in the fuel component of its rates, which means higher rates for its customers.

The new rates went into effect Wednesday, according to a press release from Allegheny Energy Inc., of which Potomac Edison is a subsidiary.

West Virginia residential customers using 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per month will see an average monthly bill increase of 34 cents, or 0.5 percent, from $66.61 to $66.95, according to the release.

The rate change is part of the utility's annual review of fuel costs and is primarily due to fuel cost increases, the release states.
