Tools for PSC Public Hearings

This page is a list of resources you might need to prepare for the WV PSC public hearings in late September and early October.

The first item on the list is a handout/flier/poster you can use to inform people in your area about the hearings.  When you click on the link below, the handout will be downloaded to your computer in Microsoft Word format for you to save and print.  Hand out copies to everyone you meet.  Put up copies in your local store or anywhere else there is a bulletin board.  Use the hand out to prepare a public service announcement for you local radio or TV station.  Write a letter to the editor of your local paper.  But do it soon, time is running out.

We need to get everyone to those meetings who wants to be heard.  This is the only chance you will have to let the PSC know how you feel.
