Come to the Jefferson Forum this Saturday, October 17, at 8:30 am at the Mountain View Diner in Charles Town!
The JEFFERSON FORUM will hold its monthly meeting on
17 October 2015 0830 AM to 1100 A M
Mountain View Diner
901 East Washington Street
Charles Town, WV 25414
Our primary topic will be to discuss the proposed rate increase as filed 14 August 2015 before the WEST VIRGINIA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION by POTOMAC EDISON and MONONGAHELA POWER. The issues to discuss involve the impact of this rate increase since it follows closely upon the rate increase which took effect in April 2015. The primary reason given for this increase appears to be increased fuel costs.
Since the consuming public is given no voice before the WV Public Service Commission, save for an overworked, under funded, understaffed Consumer Advocate Office, it is not unreasonable to request that the Utility Companies offer reasonable explanations for such demands.
We require civility and courtesy at THE JEFFERSON FORUM, and every effort is made to assure that every person is allowed to be heard.
THE JEFFERSON FORUM
Potomac Edison and the WV PSC have been invited, but have declined the invitation, stating:
Thank you for the opportunity to speak to the Jefferson County Forum on Oct. 17. Unfortunately, since the issues you wish to discuss are pending before the WV Public Service Commission, I cordially decline your invitation.
Testimony regarding the recovery of our fuel costs will be accepted by the Commission on Nov. 19th & 20th at their office in Charleston. Please feel free to attend those hearings.
No date has been set for the hearing on the Vegetation Management filing.
I wouldn't miss this for the world! I'm betting Potomac Edison won't either. They'd best find some really inconspicuous spies.... anyone acting suspiciously will be hauled to the front of the room and made to address the crowd while speed eating a Gyro, Feta & Tomato Omelette and juggling a trio of Belgian Waffles.
See you there ;-)
