The Coalition for Reliable Power and the Jefferson County NAACP are urging Potomac Edison Customers to tell their stories at the West Virginia Public Service Commission hearings in Shepherdstown.
SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. - In the wake of customer education meetings held across the state last week, the Coalition for Reliable Power and the Jefferson County NAACP are urging Potomac Edison Customers to come out and tell their stories at the West Virginia Public Service Commission hearings in Shepherdstown. 

The officials public comment hearings will be held October 23-24. 

Officials say members who've attend the group meetings were provided with information and tips for coping with inaccurate Potomac Edison bills and preparing for this winter. 

In a written release Keryn Newman of the Coalition for Reliable Power said, "We recommend that you check the accuracy for your electric bill every month, just as you would any other bill. Learn to read your meter, compare your usage to the billed amount, and call Potomac Edison to ask for a corrected bill when the numbers don't agree."

Officials say these hearings provide an opportunity for folks in the Eastern Panhandle to speak directly to Public Service Commissioners. They're advising customers be as specific as possible about their billing problems, and any unsatisfactory interaction with the power company while trying to resolve those issues. 

Public comment hearings will be at held at Shepherd University, Frank Center in Shepherdstown beginning 5:30 p.m. Wednesday October 23 or 9:30 a.m. Thursday October 24. Officials say hearings will run until all those signed up to speak have had the opportunity to do so.
