OMA Testifies in Senate Against Nuke Bailout


The OMA presented opponent testimony this week on Senate Bill 128 and its proposed multi-billion-dollar bailout of FirstEnergy’s uneconomic, uncompetitive nuclear power plants in Ohio. The testimony was presented by Anthony Smith, Energy Coordinator at Cooper Tire & Rubber Company, and a member of the board of the OMA Energy Group. Smith stated: “Senate Bill 128 would cost FirstEnergy’s customers an estimated $300 million a year, for up to 16 years, to subsidize two Ohio nuclear power plants operated by FirstEnergy’s subsidiary, FirstEnergy Solutions. That adds up to $4.8 billion.” 6/8/2017
