Community Outreach

Community Education Program

NOPEC spends time in member communities visiting senior centers, libraries and community events to talk with residents about energy and how to save on their utility bills.

Do Not Knock Registry

Many door-to-door energy companies just want to get your residents to sign on the dotted line. NOPEC will never pressure residents or businesses to sign up with NOPEC, and there's no sales pitch.

"NOPEC takes wonderful care of the members. Our gas and electric pricing is good and our residents are happy. Brimfield Township got a $34,000 grant from NOPEC, part of which we are going to use for a new furnace for our fire station. We also used our $1,500 sponsorship money from NOPEC to host a Brimfield Township Movie Night on the grounds of the Kelso House Museum with an offer of free food too. Our NOPEC representative is always available and we see him at out Township organization events."


NOPEC routinely conducts a stringent process that requires potential suppliers to comply with our financial, legal and insurance standards: the highest standards in the business.

As a result of that process, NOPEC has contracted with NextEra Energy Services Ohio, LLC (NESO), a subsidiary of NextEra Energy, Inc., a trusted group of companies with more than 80 years of performance excellence, exceptional credit ratings, and financial stability.

"The residents of Plymouth Township, Ashtabula County, have greatly benefited from the NOPEC’s electric and gas aggregation programs. NOPEC negotiated a lower group rate that has lowered our residents’ utility bills each month. 

Residents also benefit from a $50,000 NOPEC Energy Grant that replaced the antiquated heating systems in our Fire Department and our Community Room. This grant provided a completely new heating system, insulation and new energy-efficient lighting, which has reduced the township’s utility bills.

This year, Plymouth Township was awarded a $1,000 NOPEC Community Event Sponsorship that helped defray the cost of its annual community Clean Up Day. The township will also receive a NOPEC Energized Community Grant of $5,400. Because of the township’s limited budget, these grants have helped complete projects that otherwise would not be affordable. The Plymouth Township officials greatly appreciated the generosity of NOPEC and its Board of Directors."
