In 2015, more than one third of the electricity produced by FirstEnergy’s generating fleet was from carbon-free sources, including
- 31.9 million megawatt hours from three nuclear power stations
- 1.6 million megawatt hours from two hydro plants
- 1.2 million megawatt hours from five wind facilities and
- 36,000 megawatt hours from solar installations.
Over the past two decades, we’ve made significant progress in reducing pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions at our generating fleet, and we have 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.
