prices, contract terms and other plan differences.
For more than a decade now, millions of Ohioans have taken advantage of electric and natural gas choice. Energy choice allows consumers, from large industrial plants to residential households, the ability to shop for alternative rates on their electricity or natural gas supply. With energy choice, Ohio consumers can choose from a variety of offers and determine the plan that is right for them.
Many Ohioans decide to shop in order to see savings off of their monthly energy bills, others value the certainty that comes from a fixed rate plan, and some switch to suppliers that will make a greater investment in renewable products.
Although you have the option to choose an alternative electricity or natural gas supplier, you are under no pressure or obligation to switch providers at this time.
Even if you are currently happy with your rates, why not take a moment to see the current rates being offered at the PUCO’s Apples to Apples comparison charts? Even if you don’t make a choice now, our charts allow you to see multiple offers in your area, so you can compare what you are currently paying with the other offers available. You have nothing to lose, and you can use this opportunity to educate yourself on the many different offers marketers are providing.
It is also important to remember that your electricity or natural gas service will not change. You will still receive the same reliable energy and billing services that you have come to expect from your local utility. The only thing that will change is your natural gas or electricity supplier.
