NOPEC (Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council) is a non-profit group of over 200 communities that negotiates lower utility rates. As Ohio’s largest energy aggregator, NOPEC buys gas and electricity in bulk to help lower customers’ utility bills.
Since 2001, NOPEC has saved residents and businesses over $300 million. The Village of Roaming Shores is a member of NOPEC’s electric aggregation program. Your community leaders chose to join NOPEC. This means residents in our community voted to allow governmental opt-out energy aggregation.
As a resident or small business in a NOPEC member community, you can take advantage of electric supply rates negotiated specifically for NOPEC customers. All eligible electric accounts in your community are enrolled into the aggregation program unless you choose to opt-out.
NOPEC is required by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) to send opt-out letters to all eligible electric customers (residential and small business) in NOPEC member communities every three years. To enroll in NOPEC’s electric program, you do not need to take any action when you receive your opt-out letter. Your account will automatically be enrolled into the Program Price Option unless you choose to opt-out and choose your own energy supplier. NOPEC publishes the monthly program price rate at nopec.org 30 days prior to its effective date.
NOPEC also offers a variable rate program that is six percent less than the utility’s Price to Compare (PTC) for residential accounts and four percent off the utility’s PTC for small commercial accounts. This program is limited in availability. To enroll in the variable rate program, call customer service at 855-667-3201.
