August 19, 1976 The Glenvllle i)emoratl Pathfinder Straight Answers From Your Power Company This is one in a series of replies to questions be- : tug asked by our custo- mers.  " Answering today Is Art Schelb, Vice President of Division Operations. QUESTION: Isn't Monongahela profit? guaranteed a certain ANSWER: No, we most definitely are not guaranteed a profit. In fact, it is quite possible for a regulated business to go broke . . . and that has happened. As a public utility, Monongahela Power is a regulated company. The rates we are per- mitted to charge for electricity are approved by the W. Va. Public Service Commission or, in Ohio, by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. The commissions establish the maximum rate of return we can earn but it is up to the Company to earn it by wise and diligent business management. There is no guarantee from the commissions or anyone else. Monongahela's earnings have declined dur- ing the past several years to substantially less than the rate of return authorized and approved as appropriate by the commissions. This has come about simply because the prices of everything we must buy to supply electric service have been increasing more than the rates we have been permitted to charge for electricity. Our suppliers can in- crease their prices as fast as is necessary to keep them in business in these times of in- flation. They are not regulated . . . but our rates are. Among the effects of insufficient earnings are (1) not enough money left over to pay for new facilities that will be needed and (2) limited borrowing ability for the same purpose. Without enough earnings, we simply would not be able to finance the construction to serve customer needs . . . and there would not be enough electricity to go around. No, we are not guaranteed a profit. But we're trying hard to make enough profit to be able to continue to provide eleotri0 ervice to all our customers. Monondahela Power .
