    EAB Impact - Utility Perspective


    The presentation will be about the impact of EAB to Toledo Edison and FirstEnergy Corp. I will talk about the approach we took to dealing with EAB and some of the challenges we faced along the way. I will also review the reliability issues it has caused to our system and costs associated with that.
