FIRST ENERGY CORP. is investing more than $14.7 million in new vehicles for line crews and other front-line service employees across its OHIO EDISON service territory. Ohio Edison will obtain 106 new vehicles for their fleet, replacing many vehicles more than a decade old. More than two-thirds of the new vehicles will be bucket and digger derrick trucks that will help crews perform their field work efficiently while also protecting workers' safety. In total, Ohio Edison maintains a fleet of approximately 1,500 vehicles. The new vehicles are part of a $110 million investment in vehicles being made by parent company FirstEnergy Corp. FirstEnergy expects to acquire nearly 850 vehicles before the end of the year.
