The State Public Service Commission has approved a settlement in Kentucky American Water Company’s rate increase case.  The order amounts to slightly less than half of the amount requested by the utility.

The settlement means a typical residential customer will see a monthly increase of $3 dollars 60 cents.  The new rates take effect August 28th.  It amounts to a six and a half million dollar boost in annual revenue to Kentucky American.

Significant snowfall across the state could result in power outages in communities east to west in the Commonwealth.  Kentucky Public Service Commission spokesman Andrew Melnykovych says it may not be nearly as critical as when there is major ice accumulation, but power interruption is still possible.  "Particularly if you are looking at situations where you've got like conifer type trees, pines and what not collect a lot of snow on their branches,” he said. “Certainly that’s potential for bringing some branches down on power lines and having some outages."

Customers Columbia Gas of Kentucky will be getting a partial break on their bills for the rest of the winter. The utility reported Tuesday that it has received approval from the Kentucky Public Service Commission for its most recent Gas Cost Adjustment.
