Warren Steel Holdings filed a request with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to have a one-third reduction in its megawatt-hour cost, according to The Vindicator’s news partner 21 WFMJ-TV.
The company shut down operations in late March primarily because of the high energy costs.
Officials said competitive pricing would allow the company to invest in upgrades and increase production.
Warren Steel has a workforce of nearly 200 and said it needs competitive pricing to stay in business.
No timetable was given for action by the PUCO.
