You Have the Power with Ohio Electric Choice
Ohio Electric Choice was part of legislation that took effect in 2001 and gives Ohioans a choice in selecting their electric provider. Electricity deregulation means you can choose who supplies the generation and transmission portions of your electric bill.
Prior to deregulation, electric customers did not have a choice of who would supply their generation and transmission service. All of their electric service came from the regulated electric utility and those rates were set by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO). Now there are companies that are competing to provide the generation and transmission of electricity to homes and businesses, large and small.
No matter which company you choose to supply the generation of your electricity, your local utility will continue to deliver the service to your home or business because the delivery of electricity remains regulated. Your local utility will continue to maintain and repair the poles and wires in your area and, if your power should go out, you will continue to call your local utility. Also, your local utility company will continue to read your electric meter.
