FirstEnergy to Increase Tree Trimming

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - FirstEnergy is ramping up tree trimming activities in West Virginia this year.
 
Spokesman Todd Meyers says $44 million has been budgeted for the utility's vegetation management program. That's up $14 million from 2012.
 
Meyers tells The Exponent Telegram that trees along more than 1,600 miles of electric lines have been trimmed by contractors so far. Another 2,400 miles will be trimmed by the end of the year.
 
In January, the West Virginia Public Service Commission ordered all electric utilities to submit plans to trim vegetation along distribution and transmission lines. The companies also must submit proposed rate recoveries for the increased costs associated with the trimming programs.
 
PSC spokeswoman Susan Small says the plans are due July 23.
