Dayton’s electric aggregation program continues to save residents money
Since May of 2021, the City of Dayton has partnered with the Sustainable Ohio Public Energy Council and AEP Energy to procure 100% renewable energy for residents through an electric aggregation program. For the year ending in May 2023, the program saved the average residential power customer $350 on electric power bills.
The City of Dayton has renewed the electric aggregation program until May of 2025, and residents are expected to save over $100 this year (beginning June 1, 2023) compared to AES Ohio’s standard service offer.
Each year, the City of Dayton makes efforts to procure a competitive supply rate that is lower than the default AES Ohio standard offer. This year, the City was able to procure a supply rate lower than AES Ohio standard, but the City rate will increase compared to last year because of global energy prices. The City locked in a rate of 9.65 cents per kWh until May of 2025, compared to 7.4 cents per kWh for 2022. The AES Ohio standard price is 10.8 cents per kWh.
The City of Dayton recommends participating residents continue with the aggregation program. Residents already on the default AES Ohio supply rate will be automatically opted in the City program; residents on another supply agreement will not be automatically opted in. Customers may opt out at any time with no fee and are always free to shop electric rates.
Dayton residents will receive a letter offering an opportunity to opt-out of the aggregation program. Residents wishing to remain in the program may disregard the letter. For more information, go to www.daytonohio.gov/power.
