The switch is on and as we make the transition toward a cleaner energy future, we’re driven by our ongoing commitment to protect the environment, promote public health and safety, and create lasting value in the communities where we live and work.
We invite you to learn more about FirstEnergy's commitment to a cleaner energy future, which is reflected in the makeup of our generation fleet, the way we operate our facilities, and our support of conservation programs.
FirstEnergy has set an aggressive goal of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by at least 90 percent below 2005 levels by 2045, building on the 25 percent reduction in CO2 emissions already achieved across the company’s footprint.
