How the $1 B FirstEnergy Approved Subsidy Impacts Manufacturers


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
