OMA Asks PUCO for a Stay in PPA Cases


The OMA Energy Group joined the Ohio Consumers Counsel this week to file a motion with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) to stay a decision in litigation initiated by electric utility companies, AEP and FirstEnergy.  If approved, the stay would delay the PUCO’s ability to issue a decision in the controversial utility affiliate power purchase agreement (PPA) cases until the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has a chance to rule on a related case. The outcome of the pending FERC case is expected to determine the legality of Ohio regulators being able to approve a utility affiliate PPA.
