New rates will go into effect on December 1, 2021. A typical residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours each month will see a small decrease in their bill compared to when the case was originally filed with the PUCO.
Customers will see an increase in the fixed customer charge from $8.20 to $10, but this change is offset by the reduction or elimination of other rates.
In addition, AEP Ohio is eliminating the reconnection fee for customers who have their service disconnect for non-payment.
These rates only impact the distribution portion of your bill. The generation charges are determined through a separate process, or by your contract with a competitive electric supplier. The transmission portion of your bill undergoes a separate rate review process.
