Report: FirstEnergy invests $450 million in 2015 on Ohio Edison projects


As part of its ongoing efforts to enhance its electric system, FirstEnergy Corp. invested approximately $450 million in 2015 on Ohio Edison reliability projects and other work, including building new transmission lines, new substations, and installing remote-control equipment to help reduce the number and duration of power outages.

“The infrastructure projects we completed in 2015 and in previous years are making a difference when it comes to making our system more robust,” said Randall A. Frame, regional president, Ohio Edison. “In 2015, Ohio Edison customers overall averaged less than one outage for the year, and when an interruption did occur the average time to restore power was shorter than the previous year.”
