On Monday, September 23, Senate Government Organization Committee Chairman Herb Snyder will make good on a promise he made to Potomac Edison customers back in May. Subcommittee A of the Joint Government Organization Committee, co-chaired by Sen. Snyder, will hold a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee room at the State Capitol, room 208W at 3:00 p.m. The only item on the committee’s agenda will be “Discussion of the study regarding electric utilities billing practices.” Locations of interim committee meetings often shift around, so here is a link to the committee’s agenda so you can confirm the time and location up until the meeting time.
This is not a hearing for public comment. The committee will ask several people close to the problems to testify about the situation. Representatives from the WV PSC and the PSC’s Consumer Advocate Division, as well as someone from FirstEnergy, the Ohio-based parent of Mon Power and Potomac Edison, will likely testify.
Here is a link to a list of the members of Subcommittee A. By clicking on their names, you can find their phone numbers and email addresses. If you have questions you would like them to ask at Monday’s hearing, call or email them and let them know.
If you are a Mon Power or Potomac Edison customer, and wonder why your electric company can’t manage to send you an accurate bill even once in a while, you might want to attend the hearing at 3:00 on Monday, Sept. 23 at the State Capitol.
