CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, December 4, 2014 Page 7 Customer service centers now offer three-year Royalty at the Castlewood Elementary School's Fall Festival include Prince Aden Phillips and Princess Shea Phillips and Queen Shiloh Lyttle. registration renewals Three-year vehicle reg- istration renewals are now being offered at all Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) customer service centers and DMV Select offices. Previously, customers visiting DMV had the option to renew their registration for one or two years. The three-year renewal not only saves cus- tomers time - but it also saves them a few dollars. For the past several years, DMV has offered three-year registration renewals to online cus- tomers. During the last fis- cal year, customers com- pleted more than 71,000 three-year registration renewals online. "This is yet another convenience we're offering DMV customers," DMV Commissioner Richard D. Holcomb said. "Renewing online is your fastest option because it allows you to complete your trans- action 24 hours a day, 365 days a year from the com- fort of your own home. However, if you have to visit DMV for another transaction or if you prefer to do business in person, you can now renew your registration for three years and save yourself a little money and some time in the long run." Customers who renew their registration for two years receive a $2 discount while those who renew for three years get a $3 dis- count. If you renew online, you save an additional dol- lar. The majority of cus- tomers renewing vehicle registrations are able to complete the transaction online. More than 30 dif- ferent transactions are available at Three-year registration renewals are not available for residents who live in a Northern Virginia locality that requires emissions inspections. Because an emission inspection is only good for two years, resi- dents in those areas can only renew their vehicle registration for one or two years at a time. completes financial review of Appalachian Power Company Directs refund to customers of $5.8 million The State Corporation Commission (SCC) has com- pleted a f'mancial review Of Appalachian Power Company that will result in a refund to Customers of Virginia's sec- ond largest provider of electric service. The SCC also rejected various proposals bY the company that had the potential to raise rates for certain customers. The SCC directives come after a review of the rates charged by the state's second largest electric utility, as required by Virginia law, for calendar years 2012 and 2013. The utility's actual performance during the two- year period is analyzed to determine where the company s earnings fell relative to the range resulting from a prior Commission approval. Following that analysis, the Commission concluded that approximately $5.825 million be returned to cus- tomers as a credit over six months. For the average .resi- dential customer, that means a total refund of approxi- mately $6.85, or about $1.14 per monthly bill for six months. The credit will begin to appear on future bills within the next 60 days. As a whole, the Commission made f'mdings which we conclude are reasonable and supported by evidence in the record. Among the significant decisions within the SCC order: - A determination that Appalachian Power earned, on average, a return on equity of approximately 11.86 per- cent on its generation and distribution services. The com- pany was authorized a return of up to 11.4 percent, based on the range resulting from a prior Commission approval. As a result, by law, 60 percent of the over-earnings must be returned to customers in the form of a credit on future bills. - A determination that the new return on equity (ROE) for Appalachian Power is 9.7 percent. The Commission considers that return fair and reason- able to the company, permits the attraction of capital on reasonable terms, fairly compensates investors for the risks assumed, enables the company to maintain its fman- cial integrity, and is in line with other peer group investor-owned electric utilities. The 9.7 percent ROE serves as the baseline for the next financial review of earnings for 2014 and 2015. - A determination that the company did not establish that it is reasonable to increase certain charges for many customers at this time. For example, the company pro- posed to increase the residential basic monthly charge from $8.35 to $16, a line item charge a customer pays regardless of the amount of electricity consumed. The Commission denied the proposal. - Approval Of two new residential demand-side man- agement programs and approval of a standby charge for certain residential customers that both receive electricity from Appalachian Power and generate electricity using facilities with capacity exceeding 10 kilowatts. The company has been directed to file revised tariffs to comply with the directives set forth in the Commission order. Buy, sell, notify, employ, through rk/ We are pledged to 551-3247.
