Electric & Natural Gas Aggregation

Sidney voters approved both an electric and natural gas aggregation program during the November 2015 election. Below you will find information on both programs. If you have any questions about either program please call the City Clerk’s office or the City’s Aggregation Consultant, Affordable Gas and Electric, LLC at 618-203-8328.

Electric Aggregation

Starting with the December 2021 meter reading cycle through December 2024 the city's electric aggregation supplier will be Energy Harbor, LLC (866.636.3749)

Rate

  • $0.0499 per kWh fixed for 36 months starting with the December 2021 meter reading cycle
  • $0.0556 per kWH for a 100% renewable energy option. This is a voluntary opt-in program

Do Not Aggregate List

The Public Utility Commission of Ohio offers a “Do Not Aggregate” option for electric utility customers that desire to remove themselves from the pool of customers eligible to participate in an electric opt-out governmental aggregation program. Utility customers who complete this form will be excluded from the aggregate group.

Customers who move, even within the same utility service area, must re-register on the Electric Do Not Aggregate List. If you wish to have your name removed from the Electric Do Not Aggregate List, please contact the PUCO Call Center at (800) 686-PUCO (7826).

Natural Gas Aggregation

Residents of Sidney will begin receiving notice from CenterPoint Energy Ohio (formerly Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio) of a change to their community’s natural gas aggregation supplier, Volunteer Energy Services, Inc.  On March 25, 2022, Volunteer Energy filed for bankruptcy which has prompted a flurry of quick actions by the courts affecting the customers served by Volunteer Energy, including those in their 139 government aggregation programs across Ohio.

If you are presently under contract with another electric or natural gas supplier and want to make the switch to the Sidney aggregation program, be sure to read the terms and conditions of your current contract to determine if there are any applicable early termination fees or other penalties.
