The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio recently issued an order deferring FirstEnergy Solutions' 2009 solar requirement under Ohio's renewable portfolio standard. FirstEnergy Solutions, an unregulated subsidiary of Akron-based FirstEnergy Corp., filed its force majeure application seeking a waiver in April 2010. The company was 58 solar renewable energy credits (SRECs) short of its 2009 target, procuring 246 out of the necessary 304 SRECs. In its decision last week, the Commission granted FirstEnergy Solutions' request but ordered the company to make up its 2009 shortfall in 2010. The Commission's order is available here.
