Century Aluminum rate decision on hold

We won't know for awhile whether state regulators will approve a special electricity rate for Century Aluminum's Jackson County plant. The Public Service Commission has extended the deadline for filing briefs, after Appalachian Power and several others told the PSC they need more time to file. Some are waiting on transcripts from court hearings. Century Aluminum says it needs to reduce electricity costs so it can reopen the Ravenswood plant that closed three years ago. A decision is expected in about a month.
