We are very pleased to announce the City of Cleveland has finalized the roll-out of the 2023 Community Choice Electricity Aggregation to our eligible residents and small commercial businesses, starting in August 2023, thanks to City Council’s timely legislative approvals and work by our program partner Sustainable Ohio Public Energy Council - SOPEC. Through our group buying power with selected aggregator SOPEC, the city administration was able to secure a very competitive default ‘opt-out’ 1 year fixed rate of 6.302 cents/kWh for the electricity supply, backed by 100% Green-e certified Renewable Energy Credits (RECs).  This price will save the average residential electricity account approximately $200 over the next year, compared to the Illuminating Company’s default electricity supply rates (12.4 cent/kWh). As early as Tuesday, June 20th, eligible Cleveland residents can expect to see letters from SOPEC that outline the community choice aggregation program, including “opt-out” pathways. For questions related to the program, contact SOPEC at 1877-648-1937 If you are a low-income household experiencing high energy burdens, we encourage you to enroll into utility assistance programs. Please contact either CHN Housing Partners or Step Forward for information at 216-350-8008
