Ohio Electricity Rates

When you make a big purchase, like a new car, house or appliance, you shop around to find the best price. Now you can do the same with the company that supplies you with electricity, thanks to Ohio electric choice. Until recently, all Ohio residents received gas and electricity from a single company with rates regulated by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO).

As of today, residential and commercial customers have the option to shop around and choose from a selection of different suppliers certified by the PUCO.

Why choose an electricity supplier?
Ohio electric choice not only allows you to choose your energy supplier, but also makes electricity rates more competitive, which could save you money on energy costs.  Ohio electric choice provides a wide range of pricing plans from various energy providers that can lower your bills and offer you new options, like choosing between a fixed or variable price plan or opting to go green and invest in renewable energy.

What happens if I choose a new electricity provider?
When you take advantage of electricity choice in Ohio and choose a new supplier through ElectricChoice.com, you will continue to receive the same great service that you do now from your local utility company. You may also start to see lower electricity rates and bills.

How do I choose an electricity provider in Ohio?
The PUCO provides a handy Apples to Apples chart that allows you to compare your options and easily select the right energy supplier to meet your needs. The chart will show you the rates, price plans and other options currently available in your area.

That said, the easiest way to shop for plans/pricing and switch electricity providers completely online is to use our online shopping and comparison tool.

Do I have to choose a supplier?
While choosing electricity in Ohio is not mandatory, it is a great opportunity to view your available options and find the best energy supplier for you to see if you can save money. If you decide not to take advantage of this opportunity, you may continue to receive service from your local utility company.
