      In Re: Petition Of Kingsport Power Company dba AEP Appalachian Power Company For A General Rate Increase


      This matter is before the Hearing Officer appointed by the voting panel of Commissioners of the Tennessee Public Utility Commission ("Commission" or "TPUC") and designated by General Counsel to administer certain preliminary issues that may arise during the preparation of this matter for hearing before the Commission.

      On November 17, 2021, Kingsport Power Company d/b/a AEP Appalachian Power ("Kingsport" or the "Company") filed its Petition seeking an adjustment in rates and charges for the provision of electric service. Subsequently, a Stipulation and Settlement Agreement was filed on July 7, 2022, along with a proposed tariff with an effective date of August 1, 2022.

      Tenn. Code Ann. Sec. 65-5-103(a) permits the Commission, pending a hearing and determination, to suspend any rate increase, change, or alteration for an initial period not to exceed three months from the proposed effective date of such increase, change, or alteration./1

      Because the Commission's investigation, hearing, and final determination on the Company's proposed tariff cannot be completed prior to the effective date of August 1, 2022, the Hearing Officer hereby suspends the effectiveness of the tariff through August 8, 2022.


      The effective date of the proposed T.P.U.C. Tariff No. 3 filed with the Stipulation and Settlement Agreement on July 7, 2022, is hereby suspended through August 8, 2022, or until further order of the Tennessee Public Utility Commission, whichever occurs sooner.

      Monica Smith-Ashford, Hearing Officer
