AEP Ohio electric rates
If you don't sign up with an energy supplier of your choice, you will receive a “Standard Offer” service through Ohio Power by default. The rates for the "Standard Offer" are approved by your state’s public utility commission. If possible, though, you should avoid the “default” energy service, since you will likely pay a higher rate than you would with an independent energy supplier.
AEP Ohio "Price to Compare"
This rate is your “Price to Compare.” The Price to Compare can help you figure out how much you'll save by switching from the utility's plan to one offered by an independent energy supplier. If the supplier's rates beat the utility's "Price to Compare," you can save the difference per kilowatt hour by switching to that supplier. These rates include only the cost of producing the electricity, not the cost of delivering the electricity to you. The delivery costs will remain the same no matter who supplies your electricity. To report power outages or downed power lines, you should call the AEP Ohio customer service line listed above.
