What does “opt out” mean?

“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 the mailing, by the due date you will not be enrolled as an electric generation customer with Energy Harbor, the City’s competitive electric generation supplier, and you will not receive the low program rate of 4.34 cents per kilowatt hour. Opt-out letters explaining the rate, terms and conditions were sent by Energy Harbor in mid-May 2021.
