EATON – Eligible residents and small businesses in the City of Eaton began receiving their community electric aggregation notices this week.
The letter from Miami Valley Communications Council explains:
“Members of your community voted in favor of government aggregation, a program authorizing your local officials to purchase electricity from an electric generation supplier certified by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. To further increase the buying power, your community joined with 13 other area communities as part of the Miami Valley Communications Council (MVCC) which selected Energy Harbor to be your electric service provider.
“By participating in the aggregation program, you will receive the following exclusive pricing on your electric generation: 6.57 cents per kWh through December 2025.
“You will continue to receive a single, easy-to-read bill from your local electric utility with your Energy Harbor charges included. If your residential account is on a budget billing plan with your electric utility, and meets Energy Harbor’s minimum eligibility requirements, you will continue to receive that service.”
There is no cost for enrollment, consumers will not be charged a switching fee, and do not need to do anything to participate. Users may choose to leave the program at any time, without penalty, and will not be charged a cancellation fee.
Anyone who does not want to participate in the aggregation program, must do one of the following: return by mail the enclosed opt-out reply form; call Energy Harbor at 1-866-636-3749 to opt-out over the phone, or enter the 10-digit opt-out code found on the form online at energyharbor.com/opt-out. The deadline to opt-out is Tuesday, Aug. 15.
Following the opt-out deadline, future bills will reflect the Energy Harbor price on the next available meter read date, which may take up to 30-45 days.
