Speak up for West Virginia today (Thursday, Aug. 10) during our FAX THE PSC Day!
From 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, send a fax to the Public Service Commission of West Virginia and ask them to say NO to FirstEnergy Corp.'s bailout attempt with the proposed sale of the Pleasants Power Station near Parkersburg.
FirstEnergy, the Ohio-based parent company of Mon Power and Potomac Edison, has long hinted at plans to have Mon Power purchase the Pleasants power plant from another FirstEnergy subsidiary. The scheme, if successful, shifts the plant’s costs onto Mon Power and Potomac Edison’s West Virginia customers. FirstEnergy’s scheme is now moving forward. Mon Power is seeking approval from the PSC to buy Pleasants.
A similar transfer of ownership of the Harrison Power Plant in 2013 has cost Mon Power and Potomac Edison customers more than $160 million so far.
