On November 7, 2000, City of Shaker Heights voters passed a ballot measure which authorized the City to form an opt-out Governmental Electric Aggregation program for the purchase of electricity on behalf of the residents of the City.
The City intends to adopt a Plan of Operation and Governance, pursuant to Section 4928.20 of the Ohio Revised Code, and develop its own opt-out electric aggregation program following the procedures set forth in Ohio Revised Code Section 4928.20.
The Plan of Operation and Governance will describe services provided, professional assistance used, determination of rates, opt-out procedures, customer billing procedures, credit procedures and customer account enrollment/termination procedures.
All eligible customers who receive electric supply service from the Illuminating Company will be included in the City’s aggregation program. If an acceptable electric supply offer is received by the City for this program, eligible customers will receive a mailing notifying them of the program rates, terms and conditions and their right to opt-out.
