Through an exclusive arrangement with FirstEnergy Solutions, VolunteerEnergy is offering a substantially discounted electricity rate to business customers in the AEP Ohio area. You could save 20% or more on the cost of your electricity.
It’s simple! AEP Ohio will still send you your monthly bill and handle any service calls, just as they always have. When you enroll in this program, the only thing that changes is the rate you pay for the generation and transmission portion of your bill. That’s really all there is to it.
Electricity competition in our area is new. This is the first time a program like this has ever been offered to AEP Ohio business customers. Now you have a choice on where your energy dollars go. You can save on your electricity and still get the same billing and service you’re used to.
VolunteerEnergy is a locally owned natural gas and electricity supplier headquartered in Pickerington, Ohio. VolunteeerEnergy operates in six states and is one of the fastest growing energy companies in the USA. FirstEnergy Solutions, based in Akron, Ohio is one of the largest unregulated electricity suppliers in the nation. Both companies are financially strong, and are working together through this exclusive arrangement to provide discounted electricity to the Central and Southern Ohio markets.
That depends on the rate plan you sign up for.
We offer a fixed rate plan for both business and residential that will stay at the same price for the term of your agreement, typically two or three years. That’s important considering the rate increases instituted by AEP Ohio in the last few years. By taking advantage of this offer now, you can avoid any future rate increases should they occur.
We also offer the only Residential Guaranteed Savings rate that is computed off of the Price-to-Compare on your residential electric bill. This rate will save you 6% OFF of the EDU Price to Compare every month, guaranteed! This plan may be especially beneficial for residential users who use a lot of electricity year round.
Your new billing rate takes effect after the next available meter read date.
