FirstEnergy seeks more renewable energy credits for Ohio utilities

Akron, Ohio, September 3, 2009 — FirstEnergy Corp. released a second request for proposal to secure renewable energy credits for customers of its Ohio utilities — Ohio Edison, Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison.

The credits, combined with those acquired in an initial request conducted earlier this year, will be used to help meet the renewable energy requirements established under Ohio’s new energy law for 2009, 2010, and 2011.

The second request will focus on solar and other renewable energy credits generated in Ohio. To participate, bidders must submit bids and credit information by October 14, 2009. The RFP process is managed by Navigant Consulting, a global consulting firm with expertise in energy markets and procurement.

No energy or capacity will be purchased under this request. The number of individual bidders is not limited. Participants must prove their credits are certified or in the process of becoming certified by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

FirstEnergy is a diversified energy company headquartered in Akron, Ohio. Its generation subsidiaries control more than 14,000 MW of capacity.
