EASTLAKE — “FirstEnergy Corp.’s coal-fired power plant in Eastlake may have a second chance and avoid closing in September after the corporation announced its intent to look at new technology options.
FirstEnergy Generation Corp., a subsidiary of FirstEnergy, filed an application for a feasibility study that will look to see how the addition of four combustion turbines would affect the site, and the energy needs of northern Ohio.
A reliability analysis by PJM Interconnection determined that retiring the coal-burning units would negatively impact the area, particularly in peak events when many customers are running air conditioning on hot days.”
