FirstEnergy Corp. asked the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to lower its 2010 solar requirement under the state’s renewable portfolio standard. The utility said there were not enough in-state solar renewable energy credits available for purchase.

In a so-called “force majeure” filing with the Commission, FirstEnergy said that it was able to procure 112 of the 3,026 in-state SRECs it needed to meet its solar benchmark. The utility asked the Commission to lower its 2010 in-state solar requirement to the 112 SRECs it was able to purchase.
