OMA Seeks Court Reconsideration on $294 Million in Utility Overcharges

Together with Kroger and the Office of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel, the OMA has filed to ask the court to reconsider its recent ruling to allow DP&L to retain $294 million in charges which were deemed unlawful by the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Under the court ruling, Ohio electricity consumers can be illegally overcharged but have no recourse to refunds. The statute that the court relied on in its ruling needs to be changed, and would be by HB 247, sponsored by Rep. Mark Romanchuk (R-Mansfield). 10/17/2018
