Akron, Ohio-based FirstEnergy Solutions Corp., a competitive subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp., has launched SmartWind, a wind energy program for commercial and industrial customers.

With the SmartWind program, FirstEnergy Solutions' electric-generation customers can purchase renewable energy credits (RECs) from wind farms in western Pennsylvania and contracted to FirstEnergy Solutions. SmartWind allows commercial and industrial customers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey and Michigan to help support wind technology for producing electricity.

FirstEnergy Solutions also will purchase RECs equal to 100% of the energy used at its Akron headquarters through the end of 2008.
