MEIGS COUNTY — Energy savings has been the subject of many letters and phone calls received by those in this region over the past several months.
It seems on a weekly basis that residents receive a letter promising them a lower rate on the electric bill if they will switch to this company or that company. While some people are taking advantage of those offers, many people remain confused by exactly what it means.
With so many options thrown at residents on a regular basis the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) will be helping to educate residents on the choices available to them.
The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 10 at the Pomeroy Branch of the Meigs County Library.
Lauren Smalley, from the PUCO’s Office of Retail Competition, will help explain rights in choosing an electric supplier. Energy choice in Ohio allows consumers to have greater control over their electric and natural gas options and may result in valuable consumer savings.View this News Release (external link)
