From one utility to another

Pictured is the FirstEnergy office on Greenbrier Street, in Charleston, where former company lobbyist Sammy Gray was based when he reported lobbying a wide array of state lawmakers and other public officials. An email exchange including an invoice for Gray from a group connected to FirstEnergy’s Ohio House Bill 6 scandal surfaced in recently released documents. Now Gray is a lobbyist for Appalachian Power.

Appalachian Power and Wheeling Power filed a brief on Nov. 1 with the state Public Service Commission defending their request for a $297 million fuel cost rate increase.

The PSC already had granted the companies $124 million in fuel cost recovery earlier in the year.
