From our partners at West Virginians for Energy Freedom
Take Action Now! Deadline extended and public hearing added! Join West Virginians for Energy Freedom on Thursday, April 20th at 3:30pm in Charleston for a public hearing at the Public Service Commission offices.
The power plants currently owned by Mon Power produce more than enough energy for existing customers. Mon Power and Potomac Edison customers have zero need for an additional power plant. The sale of Pleasants Power Station benefits no one but the profit-seekers behind Mon Power, who are attempting to shift the significant liabilities and costs of this bailout from its investors onto West Virginians.
West Virginians’ electricity rates were already raised 4.8% in early 2023 — Mon Power and Potomac Edison ratepayers shouldn’t have to face another hike in utility prices. But that’s exactly what will happen if Mon Power and Potomac Edison’s proposal to purchase Pleasants Power Station is successful.
