2023 Electric Aggregation Update
Beginning in July 2023, residents will see a change in their electric aggregation program as it transitions from their current supplier to Energy Harbor. Residents will continue to receive a single, easy-to-read bill from Duke Energy with Energy Harbor charges included. There is no cost for enrollment, residents will not be charged a switching fee and you do not need to do anything to participate.
Community Electric Aggregation Notification letters will be mailed May 19 with the opt-out period ending on June 9.
Natural Gas Aggregation
The natural gas program starts this fall at a rate of $0.839/ccf through your October 2024 meter-reading-date with AEP Energy as the new supplier. There are no termination fees to leave this program at any time.
Opt-out materials will be mailed to eligible residents and small businesses between August 28 - September 16, depending on your meter-reading-date.
Only those on Duke's Gas Cost Recovery Rate (GCR) will receive opt-out materials. If you are currently shopping with an alternate natural gas supplier, you are not considered eligible due to current Ohio laws and will not receive a letter. You can choose to opt-in to the program, but we strongly suggest that you speak with your current supplier to make sure you understand your contract terms and if you have ay termination fees before making any changes.

Winter Months Usage
Residents who turned off their natural gas service during the summer months are still able to opt-in to the Township's natural gas aggregation program. This can be done in one of two ways:
1. Visit Energy Alliances online, enter your address to verify that you are in the community boundaries and then enter your Duke Energy information.
2. Call Energy Alliances opt-in number at 513-794-5555.
In both cases, residents need to make sure that you have your natural gas 'Choice Service ID' that can be found on your Duke bill or by calling Duke. It is a 22-digit number in this format...XXXXXXXXXXXXZ000000000, where the first 12 digits are your Duke account number, followed by the letter Z and then nine digits that are unique to the natural gas service.
As always, residents may reach out to Energy Alliances directly at 513-794-5555 to help them navigate through the process.
