tarar@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Federal energy officials on Tuesday denied an attempt by an Allegheny Energy subsidiary to dismiss a complaint by California officials over a $1.3 billion supply contract. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, however, also ruled to speed up the California complaint proceeding by deciding to hear the case directly, rather than sending it to an administrative law judge first, according to the document. The subsidiary, Allegheny Energy Supply Company, filed an emergency motion in October asking the FERC to uphold the contract and dismiss complaints filed in February by the California Department of Water Resources and the California Electricity Oversight Board.

WILLIAMSPORT - The town failed to collect an electricity surcharge and forward it to the state for three years, Mayor James G. McCleaf II said Monday. The town owes the state $26,500 for 2000 to 2003, when it didn't collect the surcharge, according to a memo by Clerk/Treasurer James R. Castle. The Williamsport Town Council voted 5-0 on Monday to pay the state $6,625 a year for four years to make up for the debt. Castle's memo says it would be difficult and expensive to try to retroactively charge customers, especially since some accounts have changed hands.

julieg@herald-mail.com Allegheny Energy is close to completing a $1.6 billion refinancing deal that prompted Standard & Poor's to issue a stable outlook for the utility's credit ratings on Tuesday, an S&P analyst said.

That means they made it through some of the most difficult issues," said Tobias Hsieh, director of S&P's Utility, Energy and Project Finance Group in New York City. The credit rating agency did not upgrade the B rating for Allegheny Energy because the company still has too much debt, Hsieh said.
