To enroll, you actually don't have to do anything.
How easy is that?
The Opt-Out Form
- If you live in a NOPEC member community, you can still choose not to participate. We’ll send you an enrollment letter every 3 years for electric accounts and every 2 years for natural gas, giving you the option to say “no thanks” to NOPEC and choose a different supplier if you want. Just return the opt-out form included with your enrollment letter to opt-out of the program.
- If you want to enroll, you don't actually have to take any action, all eligible accounts are automatically enrolled. You can just throw the form in the recycling bin.
- Congratulations, you're enrolled in utility savings!
- Once enrolled, you may receive a letter from your utility company confirming that your energy supplier will be changing. There is nothing you need to do at this and there will be no disruption of service. Your utility will continue to deliver your energy.
- Look for NOPEC savings on your bill.
NOPEC is NOT an extra charge on your utility bill.
NOPEC (Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council) is a non-profit group of 240 communities that negotiates lower utility rates. As Ohio’s largest energy aggregator, NOPEC buys gas and electricity in bulk to help lower your utility bills.Learn more about NOPEC

There are several reasons why some customers may not have received an opt-out notice:
- Customers may have previously signed a notice from the utility that prohibits them from releasing a customer’s information to independent suppliers.
- Customers may be under contract with another supplier and are not eligible.
- Customers may have been inadvertently excluded from the database acquired from the utility.
- Customers also may be ineligible because they are on a Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP)or are not current in a payment plan with the utility. Customers who did not receive a notice and want to join NOPEC should call 855-667-3201 (855-NOPEC01).
