Today, the WV Public Service Commission notified Delegate Skinner that it has determined, "...a general investigation should be initiated into the practices and procedures of both Potomac Edison Company and Monongahela Power Company as it relates to meter reading, billing and practices involving estimated bills."
The Commission "...intends to issue its order initializing a general investigation next week."
Please join me in thanking Delegates Skinner, Lawrence, and Espinosa, and Senators Unger and Snyder, and our Jefferson County Commissioners Widmyer, Manuel and Noland for swift and successful action.
And thanks also to the NAACP, the Coalition for Reliable Power and the West Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club for organizing and hosting the Public Hearing, as well as thanks to every citizen who came out to the hearing, especially those who came forward to share their stories.
There's still much more work to be done, but we can now pause to savor our first victory!
