ELECTRIC ENERGY AGGREGATION

Huber Heights Logos-Horizontal


Energy Aggregation Update:

June 29, 2022

Since December 2017, the City of Huber Heights has provided an electric aggregation program to eligible residents and small businesses as a competitive alternative to AES Ohio’s (formerly DP&L) Standard Offer Rate (SOR).   

In October, 2021, the City worked closely with their energy consultant, Energy Alliance, to evaluate options for renewing the program beyond December 2021. Due to significant increases in energy prices, Energy Alliance recommended to Council to not lock into any prices at that time and to have all accounts on the program go back to AES Ohio’s SOR starting with their January, 2022 meter read date.   

We are currently working with Energy Alliance to lock in a new fixed electric rate to provide the Huber Heights residents with a rate lower than that of AES's default rate.


Comparing Your Own Rates

If you are not happy with AES's default rate or the aggregation rate obtained by the City, residents do have the option of comparing and locking in their own rate by visiting the following website: 

https://www.energychoice.ohio.gov/

Once you are on the website, follow these steps:

Click the Compare Offers Now button in the middle of the page.

Choose Electric or Natural Gas.

Choose Residential and then AES Ohio (DP&L) for electric or CenterPoint Energy (Vectren) for natural gas.

This will bring you to the Apples to Apples Comparison Rate Chart.

It is usually best to choose a supplier that has zero early termination fees, no monthly fees, and a fixed rate. You will also want to check the length of the program, if desired and make sure there is no intro fee. You can use the filters in the red area on the left-hand side of the page to narrow your search (place zeros in the blanks under early termination fee and monthly fee and click on Filter Results).  

Once you have reviewed the suppliers and have decided on a rate, click on the red Sign Up button at the bottom of the box. This will then take you to that energy supplier’s website where you will need to enter your personal information, including your current utility account number.  You can also call the listed phone number to sign up through a representative.

Please contact Russ Bergman, City Engineer, with questions by email or by calling (937) 237-5816.
