Last week the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio approved a $1 billion subsidy of FirstEnergy by customers. The ruling will cost customers $204 annually for, likely, five years.
Very large consumers of electricity look to see costs from the rider of $18 million, large users $1.9 million, and medium-sized consumers $140,000 over the period.
See a breakdown by usage here. The OMA Energy Group opposed this costly subsidy, and will continue to litigate it, now that the PUCO has acted. 10/17/2016
