AMP-OH Contract & CPP's Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard

Submitted by Stefanie Spear on Sun, 01/20/2008 - 22:29.

On Wednesday, January 16, I testified at the Cleveland City Council Public Utilities Committee's PURPA Hearing. More than 16 people testified asking Cleveland City Council Public Utilities Committee to cancel, or at the very least, delay their vote on whether or not to allow Cleveland Public Power (CPP) to sign a 50 year contract to buy power from the American Municipal Power of Ohio's (AMP-OH) proposed 1,000-megawatt conventional pulverized coal powered plant to be located in Letart Falls in Meigs County Ohio. The deadline for Council to decide is March 1, 2008. The next time for the public to comment in front of Council is set for Friday, February 22. The Jan. 16 meeting started at 1:30 p.m. and ended at 6:30 p.m. A much longer meeting then anyone expected. The entire meeting was extremely interesting and I learned a lot. It is important to note that though the AMP-OH issue was at the forefront of everyones mind, the just as important issue concerning CPP's Advanced Energy Portfolio Standard was discussed at length.
