Electric Aggregation Program

Welcome to Bay Village’s electric aggregation program which provides you with exclusive pricing on the electric generation portion of your electric bill. This is possible through governmental aggregation, a community purchasing program where community officials use group buying power to purchase electricity from a retail electric generation supplier certified by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

This program was first approved by Bay Village voters in May 2010. (Updated: September 2019)

Same Reliable Service

Your electric utility will continue to maintain the system that delivers power to your home or business; no new poles or wires will be built by Energy Harbor. You will continue to receive a single, easy-to-read bill from your local electric utility with your Energy Harbor charges included. There is no cost for enrollment, you will not be charged a switching fee, and you do not need to do anything to participate.

Opt-Out Information

If you are a new member of the program, your future bills will reflect the electric price listed above (5.04¢ per kWh) from Energy Harbor after your enrollment has been completed and your switch has been finalized; approximately 30 to 45 days, depending upon your meter read date.

Of course, you are not obligated to participate in the community’s electric governmental aggregation program. If you do not want to participate in your community program, you have until the opt-out deadline to return the attached "opt-out" form below.
