Akron-based FirstEnergy avoided rolling blackouts Wednesday after asking electric customers across northern Ohio to conserve power. The company blamed the rolling blackout risk on the high-energy use in hot weather and reduced power-generating capacity since the blackout last week. FirstEnergy is the focus f investigations into the cause of last week’s massive blackout. FirstEnergy serves customers across northern Ohio through operating companies in Cleveland, Akron and Toledo.
