Mon Power customers across Greenbrier, Monroe, Nicholas and Summers counties will see a lower electric bill this year.
On Dec. 17, the Public Service Commission of West Virginia ordered Mon Power to reduce the Expanded Net Energy Cost rates by more than $65 million effective today.
According to the commission, a typical residential customer using 1,000 kWh of electricity per month will see a $4.80 decrease in the monthly bill.
Mon Power had asked the commission not to implement a rate decrease because the company’s costs may increase again in the near future. However, the commission decided, because of challenging economic circumstances and escalating annual rate increases of the last six years, it was best for the public to see lower electric rates as soon as possible.
Mon Power serves more than 19,000 customers in Greenbrier County, 3,000 in Monroe, nearly 11,000 in Nicholas and 6,000 in Summers.
