Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station is Ohio’s first nuclear power plant, and produced its first electricity in 1977. It’s located 35 miles east of Toledo. A familiar sight to anyone who has traveled across northern Ohio on Route 2.
“FirstEnergy says the plants are no longer profitable because of the low prices of natural gas.”
