What is the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio?

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) educates Ohio consumers on energy choice and certifies competitive electricity and natural gas suppliers to ensure they meet strict requirements for doing business in Ohio. It also hosts Apples to Apples, a tool that consumers can use to compare electric and natural gas options.


Why choose a new natural gas or electricity supplier?

To understand energy choice, it helps to take a close look at your electricity bill. Delivery and supply charges are the two main line items on your bill. Delivery charges correspond to the cost of delivering electricity to your home through power lines (or natural gas through pipelines). Supply charges correspond to the cost of the energy you consume and are usually shown as the price per kilowatt-hour for electricity or Mcf or Ccf for natural gas.

More than 4.2 million households and over a quarter million businesses in Ohio have taken advantage of energy choice. Consumers in Ohio, from large industrial plants to residential households, have the ability to shop around for their electricity and natural gas supply. Want to get in on the action?

Why choose deregulated energy

Here Is How It Works...

Millions of Americans enjoy the benefits of shopping for the best electricity and natural gas in the 15 states that have deregulated energy. Before deregulation, energy consumers had to purchase their power from a utility. Now competitive suppliers fight for your business. Enter your ZIP to see the plans in your state.
