Supporting economic growth

  • Energizing the Future projects are designed to increase our load-serving capability in areas of our service territory where economic growth is occurring or anticipated. Some additional work continues on new transmission facilities that energize midstream shale gas infrastructure, including energy-intensive pipeline compressor stations and gas processing facilities.
  • This proactive approach allows FirstEnergy to more readily accommodate new residential, commercial and industrial growth. It also reduces lead time for customers seeking electric service at newly constructed facilities.

FirstEnergy crews putting the final touches on a new $30 million transmission project in Elyria, Ohio, to meet rising electric demand driven by local manufacturing growth.
