Utilities Information

Aggregated Gas and Electric: Genoa Township established a contract to leverage the group buying power of its residents and businesses to provide lower gas and electric rates after voter approval for the opt-out program in 2015. This process is called “aggregation.” By default, eligible households are automatically enrolled in the program, but may opt-out at anytime to use another provider. The current fixed rate for electric is $ .0474 per kwh and varies for gas. Gas rates will be fixed beginning in January 2023 at a rate of .769 per ccf whereas electric rates will not change until June 2023 (rate tbd).  To opt-in or out, contact the Township’s selected vendors directly or, for electric aggregation only, the Public Utilities Commission (PUCO) offers a  'do not aggregate' service.

Visit the Public Utility Commission of Ohio (PUCO) and the Office of the Ohio Consumers Counsel (OCC) websites for more information on utility providers including an "Apples to Apples" price comparison tool. The PUCO regulates providers of utility services to assure Ohioans adequate, safe and reliable public utility services at a fair price. The OCC is a residential utility consumer advocate, representing interests of households before regulators and educates consumers about utility issues.
