What is this opt-out letter I received?
By Mary Ripley on November 28, 2016
This is one of the most common questions we hear at NOPEC. Here's a brief explanation about the opt-out letter you may have received recently: The Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) is the largest governmental public retail energy aggregation in the nation. NOPEC is able to use the bulk purchasing power of over 200 member communities in 13 Northeast Ohio counties to negotiate for better prices and protections for our customers. If you live in a NOPEC community, you are eligible for energy offers that have been negotiated exclusively for NOPEC customers. Since your community voted to be a part of an energy aggregation, your account is automatically included into this energy program unless you choose to "Opt-Out" and choose your own energy supplier. NOPEC is required by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), to send opt-out letters to all eligible electric customers (residential and small business) in NOPEC member communities every three years. To enroll in NOPEC’s Electric Program, you do not need to take any action when you receive your opt-out letter. You will automatically be enrolled. But, if you would like to "opt-out" and choose your own energy supplier, all you need to do is fill out the form included with your opt-out letter and send it in. If you have more questions about NOPEC, take a look at our FAQs or call 855-667-3201 (855-NOPEC01).Tags:
