Ohio energy rates
Ohio, along with several other states across the country including New Jersey, Texas, and Washington, D.C., is a place with deregulated energy. With the power to choose both a gas and electric company, Ohio residents can shop for the energy that meets their personal needs.
Consumers may select from a variety of energy plans including fixed-rate (also known as flat-rate), which offers a consistent supply rate throughout the year, and variable plans that fluctuate based on season and energy demand. Another factor of Ohio energy is the energy contract length. Customers can choose from short-term month-to-month contracts or longer periods up to three years.
As of 2019, renewable energy resources delivered almost 3% of Ohio’s in-state generation of electricity. The Ohio Environmental Council (OEC) oversees the state’s renewable energy program to give customers the power to make positive choices to better our environment and reduce greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.
