In late August, FirstEnergy, on behalf of Potomac Edison Company and Monongahela Power, filed with the PSC two cases seeking modifications to customer rates. In pertinent part, in a case to address its Expanded Net Energy Cost (ENEC) charges, FirstEnergy is proposing to decrease rates by approximately 5% effective on January 1, 2021, although the companies are also seeking rate recovery from customers for gross costs associated with COVID-19 expenses. In a contemporaneous filing, FirstEnergy is separately seeking to require its ratepayers to pay for investments it must make to ensure compliance with environmental regulations; as proposed, FirstEnergy revenues would increase by about $5 million also on January 1, 2021. The West Virginia Energy Users Group has intervened in both cases to protect the interests of large consumers of power, as have other parties, including the PSC Staff, the Consumer Advocate, and the Sierra Club. The Commission has set a procedural schedule providing for Hearings in early December to facilitate a decision that will allow new rates to take effect in 2021.
