Ohio Edison will continue to provide you energy service by default if you don’t choose a plan from a an independent energy supplier. The rates you’ll be charged under the “default” plan are approved by your state’s public utility commission. However, customers on the “default” plan will likely pay more for their energy than those who shop around for an energy plan.
Ohio Edison customers can check out independent energy suppliers working in their area and compare electricity plans.
This rate is your “Price to Compare.” You can use them as a comparison tool to help you decide if you can save money by choosing another supplier. If another supplier’s price per kilowatt hour is lower than the “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. There are additional costs for the delivery of the electricity to your home or business. The delivery costs will remain the same no matter who supplies your energy.
