CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Army will buy its electricity from the Letterkenny Industrial Development Authority under an agreement in principle reached with Allegheny Power Co.
The authority announced the agreement Monday following an executive session with an Allegheny Power representative. Authority Chairman Robert Zullinger said details of the agreement will be announced later.
John Van Horn, the authority's program manager, said it will own the electric distribution system at the depot, and Allegheny Power will operate and maintain it. The authority would buy electricity from the power company, but customers, including the Army, will be billed by Allegheny Power at rates set by the authority.
"My assessment is we are going to be able to save the Army some money, providing they continue to use as much power as they are now," Zullinger said.
