Learn more about Dominion East Ohio gas service
Another one of Dominion Power's many companies is Dominion East Ohio. It operates as a utility and distributes gas to customers in Ohio. Dominion East Ohio gas service uses an Energy Choice program. In other words, as a Dominion gas customer, you can shop around for the best natural gas rate in your neighborhood. There are dozens of retail energy suppliers in the area, including Dominion Energy Solutions that offer different pricing, natural gas plans or customer service options.
It's important to note that Dominion East Ohio doesn't offer energy supply plans. For residential and commercial natural gas plans, consumers have to go through the company's retail arm, Dominion Energy Solutions, or another retail supplier. If you don't choose a supplier, the utility places you on the Standard Choice Offer (SCO). Through this offer, the utility assigns a customer to a retail energy supplier. Regardless of supplier, customers will all pay the same rate through the SCO, which is regulated by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.
However, the SCO may not be the lowest rate on the market. If you want to get the best natural gas plan, don't give away your choice. Compare offers in the market and choose the plan that's the right fit for you. Gas customers should expect the utility to continue to deliver energy, no matter which supplier they choose. The utility is also responsible for maintaining its infrastructure of gas pipes capable of delivering the commodity.
