How Does Energy Deregulation Work?
In states that are deregulated, like Ohio, consumers have the option to shop for electricity supply outside of their local utility provider. Prior to deregulation, Ohio utilities, like AEP, Dayton Power and Light, Duke, and First Energy, were required to provide electricity supply and delivery services to their customers. If you lived in a utility company’s service area, you had no choice but to pay the rate they were charging for electricity. With the onset of energy deregulation, electricity supply became a “shoppable” commodity. Local utility companies in Ohio are still required to deliver electricity to your home or business; however, you can purchase the supply of that electricity from a competitive supplier. Here are a list of the deregulated electric utilities in Ohio where customers can shop for electric supply:
If you have one of these electric utility companies sending you a bill, you have the option to purchase your electricity from an alternative provider. When you do this, your local utility company wills till continue billing you – the new supplier’s charges will simply appear on your bill.

How Does Switching To A Supplier Save Me Money?
Great question! Switching to a competitive electricity supplier does not guarantee you savings since there are many factors to consider such as your usage and the utility company’s price to compare. As an example, however, here is how you can estimate your savings when comparing a supplier’s rate to your local utility rate:
- Your estimated annual electricity usage: 10,000 kWh
- Your local utility company’s rate: $0.0750/kWh
- An alternative supplier offer: $0.0690/kWh fixed for 12 months
- Estimated savings: $60.00*
*Savings are based on actual kWh consumption and subject to vary. Utility comparison rates can also change throughout the year.
