COLUMBUS—State Senator Frank Hoagland (R-Mingo Junction) released the following statement following First Energy Solution's recent announcement that the Sammis Power Plant in Stratton, Ohio will remain open. This effort was fought for by Hoagland in House Bill 6, the state's new energy plan that was signed into law last week.
“Ohio’s new energy bill saves you money, and it protects the state’s power supply. We needed to make sure the power that serves Ohioans is power produced here at home. This law lowers the price paid by everyone while protecting Ohio's power supply and the thousands of energy employees who work hard every day to keep the lights on in your home."
