Beshear’s Statement on PSC Ruling in AEP/Kentucky Power Case

Andy Beshear

“When AEP/Kentucky Power tried to raise utility bills for Eastern Kentucky families by 16 percent, I promised to fight. When others agreed to a lesser increase, I refused. Because of that fight, today, the PSC issued a series of rulings that the PSC claims will not increase, but actually decrease monthly bills by 4 percent. My office will carefully review the rulings to confirm the decrease. While a decrease would be good news, I understand utility bills in the AEP/Kentucky Power region are still unaffordable, and I will continue to fight so that no family must decide between feeding their children or keeping them warm.”
