Electricity suppliers might pass along AEP fee

AEP says it needs to raise the charge paid by competitors for its electricity to help stabilize its finances during a multiyear transition to a new pricing system.

COLUMBUS — “Evidence is starting to emerge about how electricity suppliers will react if state regulators grant American Electric Power’s request to modify a fee paid by competitors.

DPL Energy already is passing the costs on to customers, according to a filing by grocery chain Aldi Inc. with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

Border Energy executives have decided that half of the cost will be passed on to customers.The PUCO last month approved temporary changes in the ‘capacity charge’ that electricity suppliers must pay each month.”
