AKRON — “FirstEnergy made it clear Wednesday that it is leaving the competitive power plant business, closing or selling all of its plants, including its nuclear plants, by the middle of next year.
The sale of the nuclear plants to another company would have little immediate impact on customer bills.
Closing the plants, which would probably take several years, would also have little impact on customer bills or power supplies.
…Not all of FirstEnergy’s customers buy power from the local delivery companies. Customers who have signed power contracts with outside suppliers, some many states away, would not be affected if a nearby FirstEnergy Solutions plant were closed.”
