The local utility, AEP will continue to deliver your electricity, read your meters, and issue your monthly bills. You will continue to call AEP at 800-277-2177 for emergency repairs, downed power lines, billing questions, etc.
In this program, the price you will receive for the generation related charges is fixed at 5.38 cents per kilowatt hour through May 2019.
You would need to contact Constellation NewEnergy at 877-997-9995 to request enrollment. Constellation NewEnergy reserves the right to decline late enrollments depending on market conditions.
“Opt out” means that you can decide not to participate in the City’s electric governmental aggregation program. By returning the opt-out form, which is included in this mailing, by the due date you will not be enrolled as an electric generation customer with FirstEnergy Solutions, the City’s competitive electric generation supplier, and you will not receive the low program rate of 5.38 cents per kilowatt hour. Opt-out letters explaining the rate, terms and conditions will be sent by FirstEnergy Solutions in mid-May.
If you do not return the opt-out form postmarked by the required date, you will be included in the City’s governmental aggregation program.
You may stay with your current electric utility, which will continue to supply your electricity as it always has. Or, you may shop for a new competitive electric supplier. A list of competitive electric suppliers certified by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and their current prices is available by calling 800-686-7826.

An opt-out mailer should arrive on or around May 18 from FirstEnergy Solutions. It will explain the rates, terms and conditions and means for opting-out. If you would like to join the program, simply do nothing and you will be enrolled.
