(AmBit), owner of the Grant Town electric cogeneration project, and Monongahela Power Company (Mon Power) filed a joint petition to reopen this proceeding and for approval of a modified Electric Energy Purchase Agreement (EEPA). The Grant Town project is an electric generation facility located in Grant Town, West Virginia that began operation in 1993 and that uses coal and waste coal.

(PURPA). AmBit and Mon Power request that the Public Service Commission approve amendments to the EEPA that will have a rate impact on customers of Mon Power and The Potomac Edison Company in approximately October 2017.
