On June 1, 2021, Appalachian Power Company (“APCo” or “Company”) filed a petition (“Petition”) with the State Corporation Commission (“Commission”)
pursuant to § 56-585.1 A 6 of the Code of Virginia, for approval to recover costs associated with APCo’s Dresden Generating Plant through its generation rate adjustment clause (“G-RAC”). Specifically, APCo proposes an annual revenue requirement of $28.5 million to be collected over the 18 months following implementation of the revised G-RAC.
In support of its request, the Company states that this total revenue requirement is composed of: (i) an actual under recovery of $1 million of the Company’s
G-RAC costs for the period ended March 31, 2021; (ii) the projected under recovery of $0.3 million for the period of April 1, 2021, through April 30, 2022; and
(iii) the projected base annual revenue requirement of $27.66 million for the period of May 1, 2022, through April 30, 2023. The Company proposes to recover the
revenue requirement in two separate factors: one to reflect the base annual revenue requirement of $27.66 million and one to reflect the annualized under-recovery
amount of $0.87 million, resulting in a total annual revenue requirement of $28.5 million. APCo requests approval to implement the proposed G-RAC on and
after May 1, 2022, and to recover the requested revenue requirement over 18 months, consistent with its request in this Petition to file its next G-RAC Petition in
18 months. The Company asserts that if approved, the proposed revenue requirement will result in a minimal increase of $0.08 to the monthly bill of a residential
customer using 1,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per month when compared to rates effective May 1, 2021.
Interested persons are encouraged to review the Petition and supporting documents for the details of these and other proposals.
TAKE NOTICE that the Commission may apportion revenues among customer classes and/or design rates in a manner differing from that shown in the Petition and
supporting documents and thus may adopt rates that differ from those appearing in the Company’s Petition and supporting documents.
