In 1999, state officials in Ohio passed the Ohio Electric Restructuring Act (also called Senate Bill 3 or S.B. 3). The law was intended to spark competition in the energy market, allowing consumers to shop around for their electricity and natural gas plans instead of purchasing them from their utility.
Since the law was enacted in 2001, Ohio residents and business owners have enjoyed the freedom of deregulated energy. With more suppliers entering the market, electricity consumers across Ohio began to see more competitive prices. These days, customers are able to explore plans from various Akron electricity providers and sign up with a supplier of their choice.
