Galion city manager says Praire State deal good for city

Kent Carson of American Municipal Power and Galion City Manager Gene Toy.

GALION — “Toy says it is true to megawatt per hour rate Galion will pay Prairie State Energy increased from the time the agreement was approved in 2007 to the time construction was completed and it started generating electricity.

But he says the increase has been expected, and he does not believe it’s an added expense the city cannot handle, and doubts residential electric rates will increase.

Toy says Galion residents pay less per kilowatt hour than do customers of American Electric Power and First Energy, and the rates with Prairie State are locked in for thirty years.”
