Mon Power and Potomac Edison are seeking a $165 million rate increase to cover fuel and other costs.

The First Energy subsidiaries have asked the West Virginia Public Service Commission to approve a 12.5 percent increase in their expanded net energy cost rate. The rate is separate from the utilities' base rate.

In a Friday filing with the PSC, the companies say the proposed rate hike would add $8.79 to the monthly bill of a residential customer using 1,000 kilowatt-hours per month.
