AKRON, OH--(Marketwire - Mar 25, 2013) - Are you in the market for electric generation, looking to save on your electricity bills? Like millions of residents and small businesses throughout Ohio, you can save money through governmental aggregation programs offered by FirstEnergy Solutions (FES), a subsidiary of FirstEnergy Corp.
One of the easiest ways for a large group of customers to secure long-term savings on their electricity bills, governmental aggregation allows communities to bring their citizens -- and small business owners -- together to buy electricity as a collective group and negotiate the terms, conditions and price of the electric supply on the group's behalf.
Along with being a proven and effective means of reducing energy costs, additional benefits of governmental aggregation include:
- Taking the hassle out of comparison shopping. Participating in your community's aggregation program supplied by FirstEnergy Solutions offers exclusive discounted pricing to eligible residential and small business customers.
- Peace of mind. Knowing you are part of a larger group gives your community greater buying and negotiating power, and the potential for even greater savings on your electricity bill.
Most governmental aggregation programs are set up so that all eligible residents and small businesses are automatically enrolled when moving into, or setting up shop in, a community with an established program -- or implemented when approved by voters during a primary or general election. Those who choose not to participate can "opt-out" of the program and shop for a supplier or accept the standard rate offered by their local utility.
