With hearings resuming this week in Columbus, AARP is urging the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to reject a proposed settlement with FirstEnergy that would grant the electric company an unprecedented $3.1 billion bailout. “The proposed settlement is a bad deal for consumers,” says Trey Addison of AARP Ohio. “It would add $10.50 per month to residential electric bills, every month, for the next eight years.” AARP points out the proposed rate hike would subsidize FirstEnergy’s deregulated merchant power plants …
