Ohio Residential Electric Rates
Since 1999, homeowners in Ohio have the freedom to choose their electric or natural gas supplier. This ultimately helps energy customers save money by opening the market to national retail energy suppliers. The majority of Ohio is serviced by the utility American Electric Power (AEP). Other examples of Ohio utilities include Duke Energy Ohio, Dayton Power & Light, and First Energy.
The Energizer® Power Portal has vetted energy suppliers from across the country to establish a network of high-quality suppliers who have a track record of providing homeowners with quality energy at an affordable price. Plans and product options are listed below and more information can be found here:
- Fixed Rate Plans: While you are growing, you may notice that fixed rate plan prices are often higher than those offered by variable rate plans. The reason behind this: fixed rate plans take seasonal fluctuations into account.
- Variable Rate Plans: These plans offer pricing models that change based on the retail price of energy. These fluctuations have been known to occur multiple times a year and could mean rate spikes during high energy-use seasons.
Why Do Ohio Homeowners Switch Energy Suppliers?
The biggest reason to switch your energy provider is to save money. When you use our service to switch energy providers, you can be sure that you have access to the best prices available. The power to choose is in your hands.
Remember: natural gas and electricity are commodities with prices that fluctuate with the commodity markets on a daily basis.
If I make the switch, who provides power to my home?
If you do decide to sign up for a deregulated energy plan, your local utility will still be responsible for sourcing your energy from your contract’s third-party supplier. However, regardless of whether you choose a deregulated energy plan, your local utility will still deliver the power to your home.
