COLUMBUS, OH (WTOL) - It appears FirstEnergy customers will not see their electric bills go up for the time being.
A vote on a bill in the Ohio House that would allow FirstEnergy to raise rates is suspended.
The company wants the rate hike to pay for it's nuclear power plant fleet.
A Committee Chairman says Ohio House members do not seem interested on holding a vote on the matter.
If the bill is not passed, Davis Besse could be one of several power plants that could close.
