COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A suburban Columbus man who filed a formal complaint with regulators against his electricity utility more than three years ago has yet to receive a ruling on the matter.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/1N7WkUR ) Powell resident John Keller claims negligence committed by American Electric Power led to a power failure that cost him $1,500 worth of food.

Keller says inaction by AEP’s tree-trimmers directly led to a limb falling on a power line that affected an estimated 650,000 customers in June 2012.

AEP says Keller’s claims are unsubstantiated.

Testimony was taken and sent to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio for a decision two years ago.



PUCO spokesman Matt Schilling acknowledged the complaint has remained pending longer than usual, but the commission expects a decision in the near future.
