We buy in bulk, so you can save money on gas and electric bills.
(Because you shouldn't pay more for the same thing.)
How does NOPEC save you money?
NOPEC buys electricity and natural gas in bulk, then passes the savings on to you. Since 2001, we've saved Ohio consumers hundreds of millions of dollars on their energy costs. We've also awarded over $34 million in community energy-efficiency grants.
Still wondering if NOPEC is ‘worth’ it? Here’s how we save you even more on gas and electric bills.
Too often, energy suppliers will offer gimmick giveaways for short-term deals but no long-term guarantees of continued savings. NOPEC negotiates consumer-friendly terms regarding renewal and price adjustments to ensure you get consistent, worry-free rates and terms all year long, year after year.
Advocating for You
We educate state and national legislators about the consumer benefits of energy aggregation. Our representatives advocate for you in hearings that directly impact energy regulation and your utility bills.
Energy Efficiency Financing
We frequently provide small businesses with energy-efficient financing through our PACE and STEP loan programs. It’s our way of helping commercial property owners finance energy efficiency and renewable energy improvement projects.
We spend significant time in NOPEC member communities through our Community Outreach Program, answering residents’ questions and providing information about NOPEC and other energy-related topics. In addition, we engage with our communities through our event sponsorship program and by providing resources like the community toolkit and Funding Main$pring.
Energy saving tips and tricks
We offer exclusive online tools that show you how to save energy room by room throughout your home. We help you understand your energy usage and make better energy choices to save money on gas and electric bills.Tip House
Someone came to my door and I signed up with them, what makes you different?
NOPEC is concerned with:
- a long-term approach to the energy market
- short-term savings
NOPEC recognizes that long-term savings for consumers will result from regulatory changes and new laws that must be passed and is dedicated to representing the interests of our consumers in seeking those changes.
Private, for-profit energy suppliers (often the ones that come to your door) are focused on short-term offers. Their positions on regulatory changes and laws likely will be aimed at their own bottom lines rather than the interests of consumers.
If you want to prevent unwanted solicitors at your door, sign up for our Block the Knock program. This program puts your address on a list of homes that for-profit solicitors are not allowed to knock at. See if you live in a Do Not Knock community.
