Notice is hereby given that Peoples Gas WV LLC, a public utility, has filed with the Public Service Commission of

The proposed increased rates will become effective November 1, 2021 unless otherwise ordered by the Public

Commercial $ 25.93 9.3%

The increases shown are based on averages of all customers in the indicated class. Each class may receive an
increase or decrease greater or less than stated here. Individual customers may receive increases that are greater
or less than average. Furthermore, the requested increased rates and charges are only a proposal and are subject
to change (increases or decreases) by the Public Service Commission in its review of this filing. Any increase in rates
and charges will not become effective until authorized and approved by the Public Service Commission. (If a hearing
is conducted, notice will be given of the time and place of hearing.)
A complete copy of the proposed rates, as well as a representative of the Company to provide any information
requested concerning it, is available to all customers, prospective customers, or their agents at any of the following

distribution utilities based exclusively on the cost of purchased gas. Consequently, protest should be limited to the
reasonableness of such costs and the method by which they are calculated. Anyone desiring to protest or intervene
should file a written protest or notice of intervention within twenty-five (25) days following the date of this publication
unless otherwise modified by Commission order. Failure to timely intervene can affect your rights to protest any
rate increases and to participate in future proceedings. Requests to intervene must comply with the Commission’s
rules on intervention set forth in the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure. All protests and interventions
should be addressed to Executive Secretary, Public Service Commission of West Virginia, PO Box 812, Charleston,
