As the final touches are being put on the $3 million renovation and modernization of Potomac Edison's regional headquarters on Bower Avenue, a quarter of a million customers of its FirstEnergy Corp. subsidiary will see some changes in coming weeks. When FirstEnergy merged with Allegheny Energy in 2011, one of the changes involved subsidiaries taking on names familiar to customers in different regions, which was Potomac Edison in this area. “We have a new headquarters with state-of-the-art equipment that allows us to communicate, manage and work as a team,” said James V. Fakult, Potomac Edison's president of Maryland operations, during a tour of the facility earlier this month.
