RICHMOND — The State Corporation Commission (SCC) will hold a public hearing on June 24, 2013, in Norton on a request by Kentucky Utilities Company for a general rate increase. The local hearing will give members of the public in Kentucky Utilities’ southwestern Virginia service territory a more convenient location to offer testimony as public witnesses.

Kentucky Utilities, doing business in Virginia as Old Dominion Power Company, seeks an increase in base rates in the amount of $6.5 million over present total operating revenues. The proposed rate increase would raise the monthly bill of a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity from $91.77 per month to $101.34 per month, an increase of $9.57, or 10.43 percent.

Two public sessions are scheduled in Norton on Monday, June 24, 2013, in the Norton City Council Chambers at 618 Virginia Avenue. The first session begins at 4 p.m. and then reconvenes at 7 p.m.

The public hearing will continue in Richmond on Tuesday, October 1, 2013, at 10 a.m. It will be held in the Commission’s second floor courtroom located in the Tyler Building, 1300 East Main Street, in downtown Richmond. Any person wishing to comment at any of these hearings should arrive early and notify the SCC bailiff.

Written comments on the proposal must be submitted by September 26, 2013. All correspondence should be sent to the Clerk of the State Corporation Commission, Document Control Center, P.O. Box 2118, Richmond, Virginia 23218-2118, and refer to case number PUE-2013-00013.
