FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - FirstEnergy Corp. says it invested $198 million last year in the Mon Power service area.

The investments included building new transmission lines and substations and installing remote-control equipment to reduce the number and duration of power failures.

Approximately $65 million of the total was spent on transmission-related projects owned by the Trans-Allegheny Interstate Line Company, a FirstEnergy transmission company.

Holly Kauffman is president of FirstEnergy’s West Virginia operations. She said the investments are intended to enhance day-to-day service reliability for its customers.

Mon Power serves about 385,000 customers in 34 West Virginia counties.
