In a document filed with the Puco the company said it intends to file the rate change application in not less than 30 Days. The officials said the request will be made primarily to begin recovering the operating expenses and taxes that must be paid when the Perry i nuclear unit begins operation later this year although there also will be some offsetting fuel Cost savings once the Plant is operating. Toledo Edison has a 19.91 percent share of the Perry Plant. In announcing its intention to file the company noted that it has not had a permanent rate increase since 1984. The company had asked for a 12.6 percent increase but was granted 3.5 percent. Any increase in Bills associated with the new Case would not be effective until 1987. The pending Case filed in May 1985 was for $103 million although $22.7 million of that already is being collected on an interim basis since february of last year. The new Case would increase Revenue by an additional $29 million Over the current request. Company officials noted that it is impossible to calculate the Revenue Impact of the new Case by itself because the current Case has not been decided. An average residential customer who uses about 500 kilowatt hours of electricity per month now pays $49.80 a month. Under the pending Case the same customer would pay $57.98, and under the new Case he would pay $60.83, an increase of slightly less than $3 a month Over the current request. Toledo Edison provides electricity to More than 270,000 residential commercial and Industrial customers in to Northwest Ohio counties.
