Does the City currently have an electric aggregation program?

UPDATE: In August 2022, the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) announced that it plans to transition all its 550,000 Standard Program Price customers to the Illuminating Company’s standard service offer rate because it is significantly lower right now than NOPEC’s rate. Click here to learn more.

The City is a member of NOPEC for its electric aggregation program. NOPEC is a not-for-profit made up of more than 220 Ohio communities (including Shaker Heights) that buys electric in bulk from NextEra Energy Services Ohio, LLC (NESO). Residents in NOPEC communities are automatically enrolled, but may opt out at any time. NOPEC customers have several choices, including a fixed-rate option and 100 percent renewable option. The City is in the process of developing its own 100 percent renewable electric aggregation program to be effective 2023. Learn more about this program.

Customers may switch to another supplier by canceling their NOPEC/NextEra contract at no cost. For more information and to compare rates visit the NOPEC website or the PUCO's Apples to Apples Comparison website
