FES Closing Last OH & PA Coal Plants

FirstEnergy Solutions this week announced its plans to close its last Ohio coal-fired power plant, the W.H. Sammis plant on the Ohio River in Stratton in 2021, and its last Pennsylvania coal plant, the Bruce Mansfield plant in Shippingport in 2020.

This comes on the heels of the bankrupt firm announcing the closure of its expensive nuclear plants. The firm has petitioned the Trump administration for bailouts of the plants.

PJM, the grid manager, must approve any plant closures. 8/30/2018
