Say NO to the Pleasants Power Station Bailout: Submit Your Comments to the PSC TODAY!

FirstEnergy is scheming to keep Pleasants Power Station open by forcing it on ratepayers like you. Not only is it an out-of-date, coal-fired power station that was actually scheduled to close in 2019, but even FirstEnergy acknowledges that the plant is expensive to operate. The worst part is that we don’t even need the plant – we have enough power being generated in-state already to meet our needs!

The current comment period is about keeping the plant open for a year while officials further “study” the proposed sale. If the plant doesn’t operate during that year, most families’ bills will go up by about $36 a year – but if the plant operates, bills will go up even more.

Submit Your Comments

FirstEnergy’s proposal would protect its own shareholders, while forcing West Virginia customers to bear all of the costs and risks. If FirstEnergy’s scheme is successful, customers would be saddled with potentially massive costs and liabilities.  

Please click Take Action now to send your comments to the WV Public Service Commission demanding they say NO to the Pleasants Power Station bailout.

Don’t forget to personalize your letter: tell the Commissioners how increased rates will harm you, and the people and businesses you love. They need to hear it’s important to you that YOU don’t pay for another bailout.
