FirstEnergy (FE) and American Electric Power (AEP) negotiated with Ohio Public Utilities Commission (PUCO) staff and several stakeholders for comparisons for non-manipulable power purhase agreement (PPA) drivers, which should be paid by all customers in each company`s service area. The Ohio Consumer Council estimates that the EEA plan could cost consumers $3.9 billion over the 8-year PPP period and that PEPA regulation could cost consumers $2 billion. The annual costs of drivers to builders are estimated to be between $2,500 and $600,000, depending on the distribution company they operate and the amount of electricity they use. These AAE drivers are used by distribution companies to subsidize certain unprofitable production facilities (coal and/or nuclear) that they own or own their unregulated competitive production companies, eliminating their own cost risk and placing them on the backs of consumers. Under an AAE agreement, consumers make monthly payments based on the amount of electricity generated by the system. This agreement is aimed at vertically integrated companies that finance and install systems. This agreement is intended to lease solar installations to private customers and is intended to be used by vertically integrated companies that finance and install systems. This housing lease was established for companies working with a network of third parties or financiers. This rental agreement is for professional end-users, not landlords. In both cases, PUCO staff initially rejected the AEA`s proposals because of a lack of consumer benefits, but ultimately agreed to amend versions of AAEs and other costly provisions following closed-door negotiations with small groups of stakeholders, many of which were conditional on pre-defined financial benefits. This PPA contract is for commercial end-users and is a newly developed and modernized version based on a collaborative process with industry and other stakeholders.
