Electric and Gas Aggregation
Prairie Township Electric and Natural Gas Aggregation Program
Electric Aggregation Program:
Beginning on March 1, 2019, Prairie Township will be working with a new supplier for the Electric Aggregation Program. Volunteer Energy Services was selected as the Township's preferred electricity provider and will provide a fixed electric rate of .0495 cents per/kWh for eligible residents and .0505 per kWh for eligible businesses. Eligible residents will receive the discounted electric rate starting with the March 2019 billing cycle through November 2021. You are automatically enrolled into the program, but are eligible to opt-out of the program at any time. Prairie Township is providing you with the opportunity to join with other residents to potentially save money on the electric you use. Savings are possible through a concept called government aggregation, where Township officials bring together citizens to gain group-buying power for the purchase of electric from a retail supplier certified by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. Township voters approved this program in November 2013. There is no cost for the enrollment and you will not be charged a switching fee. One important new feature is that budget billing of the entire bill will be available to anyone who chooses prefers budget certainty. As with the utility you will still be required to request the service. If you choose to take advantage of the program you do nothing, do not send in the opt-out form. Questions regarding the aggregation program, how to join the program or any questions regarding your specific existing energy services can be directed toward the Townships consultant Scott Belcastro of Trebel, LLC at 877-861-2772.
