Commentary in Ritchie Gazette: Power Plant Sale

Kudos to Jennifer Efaw for her recent commentary in The Ritchie Gazette on FirstEnergy Corp.'s bad deal for West Virginians on its proposed sale of the Pleasants power plant.

Here's an excerpt from her piece: "You may not have paid it much attention, just another legally-required meeting of the Public Service Commission of West Virginia... .

"Mon Power, Potomac Edison, and FirstEnergy may be hoping you don’t notice it.

"The public meeting in Parkersburg on Sept. 6th is to voice concern with the proposed sale of the Pleasants County power plant at Willow Island, from FirstEnergy subsidiary Allegheny Energy Supply to Mon Power and Potomac Edison. Mon Power and Potomac Edison are also both subsidiaries of FirstEnergy."


Additional public hearings will be held Sept. 11 in Martinsburg and Sept. 12 in Morgantown. Click here for more info on public hearings and to fax a letter directly to the PSC.
