FirstEnergy moves to go solar

By , - Last modified: October 3, 2013 at 10:24 AM

FirstEnergy Corp., the parent company of MetEd, which serves parts of Berks and Northampton counties, is looking to get greener.

The company has put out a request for proposal to buy 13,500 solar photovoltaic alternative energy certificates annually for the next 10 years.

Spokesman Scott Surgeoner explains that means 13,500 kilowatt hours of the power it sells to consumers would be generated by solar power each year.

Surgeoner said the solar power could come from any provider in Pennsylvania and can be sold in groups of 500 credits.

The request for proposal will be conducted by the Brattle Group of Cambridge, Mass., and will be held Oct. 24 through Nov. 14.

Further information about the SPAEC RFP is available on FirstEnergy's website at www.firstenergycorp.com/PA2013SPAECRFP.
