County seeking electric, gas aggregation program in five townships
SPRINGFIELD, OH (Feb. 24, 2020) – The Board of Clark County Commissioners will ask voters in five townships to approve the inclusion of an electric and natural gas governmental aggregation program at the polls on March 17.
Electric and natural gas governmental aggregation allows eligible households and small business that participate the opportunity to save money on the generation portion of their electric bills by grouping together to increase their purchasing power. Green, Harmony, Moorefield, Pleasant, and Springfield townships are currently not operating an electric or natural gas aggregation through their township.
To further enhance their residents’ buying power, Clark County will be utilizing the County Commissioners Association of Ohio Service Corporation (CCAOSC) aggregation program. The CCAOSC electric and natural gas aggregation program currently consults with over two dozen other Ohio counties and has helped save participating residential and small commercial customers millions of dollars since the program’s inception in 2009.
By grouping together, counties can leverage their buying power when shopping the market, thus securing the best deals possible. All Ohio Edison, Dayton Power and Light, Columbia Gas and Vectren Gas customers are eligible to participate. Residents are also able to leave the aggregation program at any time with no fee.
All County municipalities and the following townships in Clark County are currently operating their own governmental electric and/or natural gas aggregation and would not be included in the program: Bethel Twp., German Twp., Mad River Twp., Madison Twp. and Pike Twp.
