Power Plant Retirements in Ohio & Pennsylvania

First Energy Solutions recently announced a series of power plant retirements. The plants, representing a total of 4,077 megawatts of generating capacity, are to be deactivated on the following schedule:

  • Eastlake 6 (Eastlake, Ohio) | 24 MW | Coal | June 1, 2021

  • Bruce Mansfield Units 1-3 (Shippingport, Pa) | 2,490 MW | Coal | June 1, 2021

  • W.H. Sammis Diesel (Stratton, Ohio) | 13 MW | Diesel oil | June 1, 2021

  • W.H. Sammis Units 5-7 (Stratton, Ohio) | 1,480 MW | Coal June 1, 2022
