New Quarterly Newsletter to Inform Mon Power and Potomac Edison West Virginia Customers about Key Utility-Related Topics

AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mon Power and Potomac Edison, subsidiaries of FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE), will launch in March a new quarterly newsletter to update their West Virginia customers on important consumer topics including tips on electrical safety and energy conservation, as well as news about energy trends.

The full-color newsletter will accompany residential bills, and its innovative design will provide more room for detailed articles and news items than traditional bill inserts.   

"The newsletter is another great platform for us to deliver important seasonal and West Virginia-specific messages to our customers," said Ron Green, vice president of Customer Service for FirstEnergy.  "It's all about keeping our customers informed, and our quarterly newsletter is the perfect complement to our new smartphone app, mobile website and Twitter updates."

The inaugural edition will feature stories on how to save money on seasonal electric bills; a new mobile app for customers with Apple® iPhone® and Android™ phones to view up-to-the-minute account and outage information; safety tips to avoid downed power lines; and registering for paperless bills.

The newsletter is part of FirstEnergy's ongoing effort to enhance service to its utility customers.  Customers enrolled in electronic billing can visit www.firstenergycorp.com/billinserts to view a printable version of each newsletter. 

Mon Power serves approximately 385,000 customers in 34 West Virginia counties, and Potomac Edison serves approximately 132,000 customers across the state's eastern panhandle.  Follow Mon Power on Twitter @MonPowerWV and Potomac Edison @PotomacEdison.
