Retail direct access to competitive Electricity suppliers began on January 1, 2001, in the State of Ohio.

Certification is an ongoing, thorough process to make sure each supplier is qualified to provide electricity in Ohio.
Your Electric bill is made up of multiple parts;
- The generation service charge is related to the costs associated with the production of electricity
- The transmission charge is the cost for moving high voltage electricity from generation facilities to the distribution facilities of the local electric utility.
- The distribution charge is the cost for moving and final delivery of electricity to your home or business.
- The customer charge is the cost for the equipment such as the meter, as well as the maintenance of the service lines and distribution system.
Price to compare on your electric bill will show you what you currently pay per kilowatt-hour for generation and transmission services. This is the price a new supplier must beat to save you money. This information will not appear on the bills of commercial and industrial customers.
Your local utility will still deliver your electric as always for the same fee, but the cost of your electric is now up to you. Should your electricity ever go out or have an emergency call your local utility.
