Ohio Apples to Apples - Shop Ohio Electric and Natural Gas
In 2001, Ohio started retail choice to give Ohioans opportunity to purchase their electricity and natural gas service in an open competitive market. Since then, legislators have added a few more years until a full transition is complete, but the majority of customers can shop today.
Ohio utilities have separated their service into two parts:
- Regulated distribution of power and gas, which is only provided by the utility, and
- Supply of the electric or gas commodity, which is open to competition.
Customers can choose to receive their electric or gas supply from their utility, or an alternate electric or gas provider.
The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) gained responsibility for facilitating competitive utility choices for Ohio consumers and to assure Ohioans adequate, safe, and reliable public utility services at a fair price. To do this, the PUCO recommends comparing energy options in an "Apples to Apples"" way.
SaveOnEnergy.com provides customers with such "apples to apples" rate comparisons in Ohio via an online marketplace. SaveOnEnergy.com puts all reputable energy companies together on the same page with their multiple rate options and contract terms, for the consumer to compare side by side. SaveOnEnergy.com makes signing up with an alternate energy provider in Ohio an easy process.
No matter who you choose to buy energy from, your local utility will continue to deliver your electricity or gas and respond to service interruptions and outages. You will still pay your utility for these services. Depending on your area, you can choose to receive a single bill from your utility listing your utility delivery charges and competitive supply charges, or separate bills from the utility and alternate energy provider.
