some shocking news.

Appalachian Power is asking for
another rate increase.

*CG locator Roanoke

The power company is now asking
the state to approve rate adjustments
for fuel costs, and environmental
projects.

If approved, a customer's bill
would go up about 4.7 percent in
September and then another 3.5 percent
in December.

For the average customer, that
would add another six to eleven dollars
to your monthly bill.

Appalachian Power realizes that
may be a little hard to swallow
considering customers just a saw an
increase two months ago.
