Hearings Thursday and Friday on Power Rates

Citizens' groups are urging customers of Mon Power and Potomac Edison to attend two days of public hearings into Mon Power's billing and meter-reading practices. The Coalition for Reliable Power and The Mountain Institute say the West Virginia Public Service Commission has received a record number of complaints in the past year, and will hold hearings at 5:30 p.m. Thursday and 9:30 a.m. Friday at West Chester Village in Fairmont. Everyone who wants to will have the chance to speak.
