Don't let Ohio coal get a bailout!
In June, Governor Kasich signed into law a bill that guts Ohio's clean energy and efficiency standards. Passing this new law was not enough for Ohio's utilities, though. Now, Ohio's largest electric utilities, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are seeking to keep a number of Ohio's oldest and dirtiest power plants open for years to come.
And they want you and me to pay for it.
In cases currently pending before the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, AEP, Duke, and FirstEnergy are trying to increase customer electric bills to pay for aging coal plants that are not competitive with market prices. In AEP's case alone, AEP wants to charge customers an estimated $117 million to keep six dirty, expensive coal plants in operation.
Tell Gov. Kasich and the Public Utilities Commission you don't support this bailout for old dirty coal plants.
