There is another story that has been almost invisible in the WV media, for more than two weeks. Again, only the Martinsburg Journal and the Weston Democrat have covered this story.
Keryn Newman of Shepherdstown and Ali Haverty of Chloe are systematically exposing the attempts by AEP/Allegheny to include unqualified costs in FERC’s cost recovery process for PATH. Keryn and Ali have been working alone, with no help from any state regulators in WV, MD or VA. Keryn is a key leader of StopPATH WV. She reports regularly on the progress in the FERC challenge case on the StopPATH WV blog.
For the last three months, Keryn and Ali have kept Allegheny’s hotshot DC lawyer and his accountants scrambling around trying to hide or “correct” their “mistakes.” Keryn’s accounts of Mr. Palmer’s antics on StopPATH WV’s blog have been hilarious.
Here is the latest news on what Keryn and Ali have uncovered, and Ali’s latest victory. You won’t find it in any other WV media outlet. Here is The Power Line’s story from November 30. Keryn has the best updates on this story on StopPATH WV’s blog.
The story of AEP/Allegheny’s cheating on their guaranteed profit game at FERC affects every single electric rate payer in West Virginia. Why don’t newspapers, TV and radio in our state cover this important story?
