How to understand deregulation in Ohio

In most states, consumers buy their electricity and natural gas from the local utility company. But a handful of states have deregulated energy. That means people have the power to choose the company they buy their electricity and natural gas from. Ohio deregulated the energy industry in 1999 with the passage of the Ohio Electric Restructuring Act. As a result, consumers in Ohio get to search for cheap electricity in Ohio and buy it..

What is Vectren Energy Delivery’s price to compare?

Price to compare refers to the rate that customers pay their utility company for natural gas if they don’t sign up with an independent natural gas supplier. This rate, known as the “standard choice offer”, is the price you’ll pay for the default service. But customers don’t have to pay this rate. Those who take the time to shop around can save money by switching to a different provider. Vectren’s current price to compare for natural gas is 39.6 cents per hundred cubic feet.
