NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF 2009-2010 FUEL FACTOR PROCEEDING FOR OLD DOMINION POWER COMPANY CASE NO. PUE-2009.00008 On February 18, 2009, Kentucky Utilities Company d/b/a Old Dominion Power Company ('ODP" or 'Company') filed with the State Corporation Commission ("Commission") its application, written testimony, and exhibits requesting authority to increase its fuel factor from 2.597 par kWh to 3.360 par kWh, effective for service rendered on and after Apnl 1, 2009.
