This competitive bidding process (“CBP”) is a solicitation process by which The Cleveland Electric Illuminating Company, The Toledo Edison Company, and Ohio Edison Company ("FirstEnergy Ohio Utilities"), wholly-owned subsidiaries of FirstEnergy Corp, are seeking to procure full requirements service for their Standard Service Offer (“SSO”) customers – which is load not being served by a Competitive Retail Electric Service ("CRES") Supplier and excludes load associated with customers on the Percentage of Income Payment Plan (“PIPP Customers”). Winning bidders will assume all responsibilities of a Load Serving Entity (“LSE”).
