AKRON, Ohio –  FirstEnergy Solutions (FES), soon to be renamed Energy Harbor, announced today that it will donate ten, new HP EliteBook laptop computers, valued at $15,000, to the Mason Community Learning Center, located in Akron’s Middlebury neighborhood.


FES, which will become Energy Harbor upon its emergence from bankruptcy proceedings, plans to relocate approximately 150 employees to a downtown Akron headquarters building during the first quarter of 2020. It is committed to supporting downtown Akron and neighboring educational and civic organizations that provide for the well-being of the people of Akron.


“We are excited about our move to downtown Akron and we intend to do all that we can to be good neighbors to those who live and work around us,” said FES’s Chief Executive Officer John Judge. “The Mason Community Learning Center is a jewel in the Akron Public School System, and we hope that our donation will assist its dedicated educators as they continue to provide Pre-K-6 students with tools needed to help them succeed in the years ahead.”


“We are thankful for such a generous gift from our newest neighbor and we welcome them to downtown,” said Mason Principal, Angela Harper. “The computers from FirstEnergy Solutions will be of great value to our students and to our educators who do all that they can to create a positive learning environment.”


Upon emergence from restructuring, Energy Harbor will be a privately held, financially secure, independent power producer and a fully integrated retail energy provider with a competitive suite of products for its growing customer base. With its fleet of reliable generating resources capable of producing nearly 50 million megawatt hours of electricity, including substantial carbon-free power, Energy Harbor is well positioned for long-term value creation and competitiveness in a low-carbon future and to enable customers to meet their environmental, social and sustainability goals.
