Gene Krebs, Chairman of the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel (OCC), wants the OCC Governing Board to question “[w]hy Ohio consumers have not received the full benefit of deregulation” in 2015, according to a recentHannah Report. Krebs questions Ohio’s utility prices, and “OCC staff said the state push for ‘reregulation’ of power plants would benefit utility companies, not consumers,” according to the report. OCC Director of Analytical Services, Dan Shields, said the industry’s request for power purchase agreements would not help consumers (for more on this, see our September 8, 2014 blog post). Shields commented, “Generation prices are at historic lows, and customers should be benefiting,” but “electric utilities, through proposed power purchase agreements (PPA) are requesting reregulation of certain generation plants.”
