Item 7.01 Regulation FD Disclosure

On October 16, 2009, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission approved the results of an auction (the “October 2009 Auction”) conducted by West Penn Power Company, a subsidiary of Allegheny Energy, Inc. (“AYE”), to purchase a portion of the power required to serve its customers in Pennsylvania for 2011 and beyond. A copy of AYE’s press release announcing the results of the October 2009 Auction is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.

West Penn awarded five contracts, all of which begin on January 1, 2011. These contracts represent approximately 1.8 million megawatt-hours (“MWh”), or 250 megawatts, of generation supply. Additional information regarding contracts awarded in the auction is set forth below.

Energy and all other components

   $ 52.93    $ 53.42

Allegheny Energy Supply Company, LLC (“Allegheny Supply”), a subsidiary of AYE, was awarded all five contracts. AYE estimates that the contracts won by Allegheny Supply in this auction will result in an increased energy margin of approximately $10 per MWh (pre-tax) for 2011 compared to 2010. This $10 per MWh increase in 2011 energy margin excludes gross receipts taxes, line losses and capacity and reflects certain other adjustments to both the October 2009 Auction results and the 2010 Pennsylvania generation rate of approximately $52.50 per MWh.

AYE estimates that at the time bids were submitted for the October 2009 Auction, the round-the-clock, energy-only price at the PJM Western Hub was approximately $53 per MWh for the 17-month period beginning January 1, 2011, as compared to approximately $57 per MWh at the time bids were submitted for West Penn Power’s June 2009 auction.

The foregoing discussion includes forward-looking statements that involve estimates, expectations and projections and, as a result, are subject to risks and uncertainties. There can be no assurance that actual results will not materially differ from expectations. Actual results have varied materially and unpredictably from past expectations.
