PSC Reschedules Paducah Videoconference in Big Rivers Rate Case

PSC KYPADUCAH, Ky. (6/11/13) – The Kentucky Public Service Commission (PSC) has rescheduled a videoconference in Paducah that will allow members of the public to provide comments on a request by Big Rivers Electric Corp. to increase rates.
 
Public meetings scheduled for Henderson and Owensboro on Thursday, June 13, will be held as previously announced, as will a concurrent videoconference in Brandenburg.
 
The Paducah videoconference is being rescheduled in order to avoid a conflict with the annual meeting of Jackson Purchase Energy Corp., which is one of three distribution cooperatives that own and receive power from Big Rivers.
 
Jackson Purchase Energy requested the change.
 
The videoconference originally was scheduled to coincide with the Owensboro meeting. The scheduling of that meeting was in turn determined by the availability of commissioners and the schedule in the Big Rivers rate case.
 
“At the time the meetings were being planned, the PSC was unaware of the conflict with the Jackson Purchase Energy meeting,” PSC Chairman David Armstrong said. “We hope Jackson Purchase Energy members will now attend both their meeting and the PSC videoconference.”

The videoconference is now scheduled for:
Paducah
Tuesday, June 18, 2013, 5:30 p.m. CDT
Crounse Hall Room 228
West Kentucky Community & Technical College
4810 Alben Barkley Drive
 
Public comments will follow. The public meetings and Brandenburg videoconference will be held at the following previously announced times and locations:
 
Henderson
Thursday, June 13, 2013, 1 p.m. CDT
Auditorium, South Middle School
800 South Alves St.
 
Owensboro
Thursday, June 13, 2013, 5:30 p.m. CDT
Room 107, Advanced Technology Center
Owensboro Community & Technical College
4800 New Hartford Road
 
Brandenburg
Thursday, June 13, 2013, 6:30 p.m. EDT
Auditorium, Meade County High School
938 Old State Road
 
For those unable to attend the meetings, the informational presentation will be made available on the PSC website, psc.ky.gov, on the morning of June 13. A video recording of the meetings also will be available on the website.
 
The Big Rivers application and related documents are available on the PSC website. The case number is 2012-00535.
 
In addition to the public meetings, the PSC will conduct a formal evidentiary hearing in the case beginning at 10 a.m. EDT on Monday, July 1. The hearing will be held at the PSC offices at 211 Sower Boulevard in Frankfort. It will be open to the public and may be viewed live on the PSC website.

Written comments will be accepted through the conclusion of the evidentiary hearing. They may be mailed to the PSC at P.O. Box 615, Frankfort, KY 40602, faxed to 502-564-9625, e-mailed from the PSC website or submitted in person at the public meetings or at the PSC offices.
 
The PSC is an independent agency attached for administrative purposes to the Energy and Environment Cabinet. It regulates more than 1,500 gas, water, sewer, electric and telecommunication utilities operating in Kentucky and has approximately 90 employees.
