New Opportunity for Residents to Avoid Met-Ed's October Electric Generation Price Increase FirstEnergy Solutions' low introductory price provides savings and stability without any change to existing electric service
AKRON, Ohio, Oct. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Residential customers of Met-Ed can sign up now to receive a low introductory price of 6.1 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) on electric generation from FirstEnergy Solutions through April 2013. The price then becomes 7.75 cents per kWh through September 2015. As a thank you for enrolling, residents also will receive a $25 Visa Gift Card soon after signing up.
