The commission also concluded that if the plants were to close, the cost of building new transmission line upgrades would cost between $436 million and $1.1 billion, costs customers would bear.The opinion and order, which is sure to be appealed, dismisses the arguments made by the experts retained by opponents, including the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel, the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council, the Sierra Club, competing power companies and others. These analysts concluded that the power deals could cost FirstEnergy’s customers an extra $3 billion to $5 billion over the eight years.UCO believes FirstEnergy deal will save customers $256 million Appeals Expected in Ohio Ruling to Keep Aging Coal Plants Online
