Electric bills may be increasing

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — Appalachian Power Co. is seeking to increase an assessment it charges Virginia customers to recover increases in the price of coal used to generate power.
The company filed a request Friday with the State Corporation Commission seeking an increase in the fuel factor charged in Virginia from 1.418 cents per kilowatt hour to 2.255 cents.
The bill for a residential customer using 1,000 kwh a month would increase 11.7 percent, from $71.48 to $79.85.
An Appalachian spokesman said costs for some types of coal have increased more than 125 percent in the last six months. The increase was blamed on a growing global market and a relatively weak dollar.
The company has 1 million customers in Virginia, West Virginia and Tennessee.
