PUCO defers vote on FirstEnergy issue
Ohio utility regulators have delayed action in a case affecting potentially millions of dollars in rebates of renewable-energy overcharges to customers of FirstEnergy.
Public Utilities CommissionSFlbof Ohio Chairman Todd Snitchler said Wednesday’s vote was postponed a week to fine-tune an order addressing whether the Akron-based utility over- paid for renewable-energy credits and passed excess costs to customers. Portions of audits detailing estimates of overcharges have been blocked from public view.
One estimate put excess payments up to $126 million.
