Worthington voters gave the City of Worthington the go-ahead to pool the community’s electricity buying power by approving an issue to establish the City as an electric aggregator. The goals of the City’s electric aggregation program are to lower household electric bills and increase renewable (green) energy usage. After receiving a number of proposals from energy suppliers, City Council has entered into an agreement with AEP Energy that will reduce the electric bills of participants and include the use of green energy certificates.
Under the program, utility company AEP Ohio continues to carry, service and bill for the electricity service. The only change is in the generation source of the electricity which is identified as AEP Energy on the bill.
Eligible residents and small businesses have automatically been added to the program unless they opted-out during the opt-out period. Residents who wish to opt-out may still do so anytime by calling AEP Energy at 1-888-549-9008.
