Local Resident And School District Selected As Winners In The FirstEnergy Solutions Thanks A Million Giveaway

AKRON, Ohio, Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FirstEnergy Solutions announced the final winners of its Thanks a Million giveaway, an opportunity for residents and businesses throughout Ohio to win cash prizes and secure a low electric generation price for four or seven years.  All eligible Ohio residents and businesses that enrolled in a FirstEnergy Solutions electric generation offer between August 1, 2012, and October 31, 2012, were automatically entered into the giveaway. 

Through the campaign, eight businesses have won $50,000 each, eight residential winners have won $25,000 each, and FirstEnergy Solutions has given $50,000 to each residential winner's local school district to use for an under-funded program, supplies or however they see fit.  

Jan Quillin of New Philadelphia, Ohio, was a residential winner. Jan said, "My wife and I were very surprised to have been chosen as one of the Thanks a Million giveaway winners by FirstEnergy Solutions.  After receiving several offers in the mail, we found that FirstEnergy Solutions had the best offer, so we enrolled.  What a surprise when we received a call that our name had been drawn and we won $25,000 − and the New Philadelphia school district received $50,000.  I'm sure we both will use it wisely!  FirstEnergy Solutions has shown how much they really care for their customers and community.  Just saying 'thank you' doesn't express our appreciation.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"

New Philadelphia City Schools Superintendent Bob Alsept said, "We are very happy for the Quillin family and appreciative of this FirstEnergy Solutions grant.  This is a difficult time in funding for Ohio schools and this extra money will be used to improve our district's security and technology plans.  We are so happy that FirstEnergy Solutions included the schools in this promotion!"

"As an Ohio-based company, FirstEnergy Solutions is committed to helping ensure the people and businesses in this state continue to thrive, which is why we created our Thanks a Million giveaway," said Trent Smith, vice president of Sales & Marketing for FirstEnergy Solutions.  "It's a good boost to our economy and it directly benefits eight Ohio school districts with much-needed funding."

FirstEnergy Solutions is also making long-term fixed price offers available to residents and businesses interested in locking in an electric generation price for four or seven years.
