RICHMOND — The State Corporation Commission (SCC) has scheduled a public hearing in Norton, on May 23, 2019, to receive public comment in a case involving a fuel rate increase requested by Kentucky Utilities Company, doing business in Virginia as Old Dominion Power Company. The fuel rate is the portion of the electric bill that pays for the cost of fuel used to generate electricity and power purchased from other utilities and power producers.

The hearing will begin at 6 p.m. at the City of Norton Municipal Building, 618 Virginia Avenue N.W. The hearing will resume in Richmond on June 12, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. The hearing will be held in the SCC’s courtroom on the second floor of the Tyler Building, 1300 East Main Street in downtown Richmond. Persons wishing to comment at either hearing should arrive early and notify the SCC bailiff.

The revised fuel rate of 2.643 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) will go into effect on an interim basis beginning on April 1, 2019. The proposed fuel rate represents an increase of $4.03 per month for a residential customer using 1,000 kWh per month.
