PUCO Will Hear “2014 Polar Vortex” Complaint Against FES


In the FirstEnergy Solutions (FES) RTO Expense Surcharge Case, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) denied FES’ motion to dismiss the complaint that was filed by numerous OMA  members (complainants).  Complainants alleged that FES unlawfully passed through charges associated with the 2014 polar vortex. The PUCO also granted the complainants’ request to prevent termination of service and ordered that the case be set for an evidentiary hearing.  Contact OMA’s Ryan Augsburger for more information.
