APCO RATES FS IN MONITOR Appalachian Power wants to raise rates
again in 2009 to help pay for a new
plant.

That hike would be about 12-percent,
but over a three year period.



OUBLE BOXES=JUSTIN/NATASHA DOUBLE BOXES



Keep in mind Natasha, the State
Corporation Commission has to first
approve any of these proposed rate
hikes.



NATASHA QUESTION

Justin I am sure alot of people want
to know, could we have another
situation where our bills have to be
credited, if the state denies the
increase?



JUSTIN ANSWER

Probably not Natasha, the General
Assembly has done away with interim
increases. So this time around, the
APCO cannot increase your bill until
the state gives it the ok.
