Energy Costs Rising In Southwest Virginia, Says AEP, Increase For Customers In November
As Fall makes its debut Thursday, cooler temperatures will soon follow and Appalachian Power in Virginia says it will cost customers more this winter for electricity to warm their homes. Price increases to coal, natural gas, and purchased power will raise monthly costs for most customers by about twenty dollars. Appalachian Power says they asked the State Corporation Commission, tasked with setting prices to spread the additional costs over a two year period as opposed to doing all in one year. Customers can expect to see the price increase starting in November.
