On July 15th, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) and Representative Pelanda will discuss electric choice for Union County residents. The event will take place at 7:00 pm at the Marysville Public Library in the Meeting Room A (231 S. Plum St,).

Gretchen Blazer, from the PUCO’s Office of Retail Competition, will help explain your rights in choosing an electric supplier. Energy choice in Ohio allows consumers to have greater control over their electric and natural gas options and may result in valuable consumer savings.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • What electric choice means (Who are these marketers contacting me?)

  • What to consider when shopping for an electric generation supplier

  • How to use the free tools available through the PUCO, like their Apples to Apples charts

  • How to switch electric generation suppliers

Ms. Blazer will also be available to answer questions about Ohio’s emerging energy market and she encourages attendees to bring copies of their own energy bills.

The PUCO Office of Retail Competition

With a number of legislative changes in the electric and natural gas utility industry in Ohio over the past 13 years, the PUCO recognizes the need to educate consumers on the retail competition of utility services. With this recognition the PUCO created the Office of Retail Competition (ORC) in July of 2012. The mission of the Office of Retail Competition is to improve awareness, trust and understanding of market-based utility service in Ohio.
