Solon, OH – Starting October 30, 2019, eligible residents and small businesses in NOPEC member communities will begin receiving enrollment letters for NOPEC’s electric and/or natural gas aggregation programs. NOPEC is required by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) to send opt-out notifications to eligible customers every two years for natural gas and every three years for electric.
Customers already enrolled in NOPEC’s Standard Program Price options for both natural gas and electric, and those that want to join NOPEC, do not need to take any action. As a resident in a NOPEC community, they will automatically be enrolled in NOPEC’s Standard Program Price option. NOPEC’s program price is negotiated exclusively for NOPEC member communities to deliver consistent, competitive pricing and to reduce severe price swings due to market volatility.
NOPEC also offers a monthly variable rate program, 12- and 24-month fixed term pricing, and 100% renewable products for electric aggregation customers. For more information about these options, visit nopec.org/checkrates or call 855-667-3201. Natural gas customers also have the option to enroll in a monthly variable rate program or a 12- or 24-month fixed term program. Current customers already enrolled in either the electric or natural gas monthly variable rate option, will need to contact NOPEC’s Customer Care Center at 855-667-3201 to elect to stay in the variable rate program.
If consumers do not wish to participate in NOPEC’s electric or natural gas aggregation, they must notify NOPEC by either a) filling out and mailing back the opt-out form enclosed in the enrollment mailing or b) faxing the opt-out form to 440-774-4422 by the date indicated in the letter they received.
Same Reliable Service: Only the supply of electricity and/or natural gas will be provided by NOPEC. All other functions including delivery, repair, and billing will continue to be provided by your local utility company. Customers will continue to receive only one bill.
NOPEC is a non-profit group of over 235 communities that negotiates lower utility rates. As Ohio’s largest energy aggregator, NOPEC buys gas and electricity in bulk to help lower your utility bills. Since 2001, NOPEC has saved residents and businesses over $300 million.
