Why Pay More?


ENROLL TODAY WITH VOLUNTEER ENERGY AND START SAVING MONEY ON YOUR ELECTRICITY BILL.

For a limited time, we’re offering one of our lowest residential electricity rates ever – just $0.0499 per kWh. That’s lower than AEP’s current price-to-compare and lower than any AEP residential price-to-compare in the past 30 months.

Even better, you can lock in this low rate through April 30, 2021. That means you can protect yourself from potential rate increases and spikes for almost two years. AEP can change their rate monthly and for the past 30 months the residential price-to-compare has averaged $0.0565 per kWh!

*AEP Price-to-Compare (PTC) as of 10/1/19. Offer is open to AEP residential customers until 11/30/19 or 5000 enrollments, whichever comes first.

Frequently Asked Questions

I didn’t know I could select my electricity supplier. How does this work?
In Ohio, nearly 2.5 million electric consumers are participating in Energy Choice. Choice allows you to shop for a rate plan from a PUCO certified electricity supplier like Volunteer Energy. The rate plan you select will cover the generation portion of your electric bill.

If I enroll with Volunteer Energy will my utility company change?
No it will not change. When you select Volunteer Energy as your electricity supplier, you are still a customer of AEP and will experience no interruption of service. AEP will continue to deliver electricity to your home or business, read your meter, respond to all service calls and send you a monthly bill. Volunteer Energy will appear on your monthly AEP bill as your supplier with the rate that you selected.

Is the Electricity Customer Choice Program an Approved program by my utility?
Yes it is. Volunteer Energy is a Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) certified electricity and natural gas supplier.

IF I CHOOSE VOLUNTEER ENERGY FOR MY ELECTRICITY SUPPLY RATE, DO I NEED TO CALL MY UTILITY TO LET THEM KNOW?
No. When you sign up with Volunteer Energy, we will contact your utility and notify them that you’ve chosen us as your electricity supplier. No one will need to come your home or business and you will not experience any interruption of service.

How long does it take to start receiving my new volunteer energy rate?
Your service will normally start within one or two billing cycles after sign up. Volunteer Energy will appear on your monthly utility bill as your electricity supplier with the rate that you selected.

What If I have a question regarding my bill?
Call Volunteer Energy customer service at 800-977-8374, M-F, 9am-5pm for questions regarding your rate plan, price, term, cancellation or renewal. Contact your utility for emergencies, outages and all other questions.
