Retail Competition Background:

Ohio adopted its version of “competitive electric restructuring” with the passage of Senate Bill 3 in 1999. This legislation initially froze electricity rates through 2005 and, for the first time, allowed retail customers of Ohio’s investor-owned electric utilities to shop for alternative suppliers of the generation portion of their electricity service.

Retail competition was slow to emerge in Ohio. Instead of allowing the competitive retail market to develop through the initial five-year “market development period” as had been contemplated by the Ohio General Assembly, the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) and Ohio’s electric utilities developed “rate stabilization plans” (RSPs) that extended then-current rates for another two to three years (with adjustments for fuel and other non-bypassable generation-related costs). The RSPs essentially brought Ohio’s slowly developing competitive retail market to a halt except for very limited competitive opportunities.


In Ohio, local communities are allowed, by law, to join their citizens together to buy electricity as a group and on the group’s behalf, negotiate the terms, conditions and price of the electric supply. These groups can result in “buying power” and a lower rate for the group members. Most governmental aggregation programs are “opt-out” programs which automatically enroll all local residents, unless they individually and actively opt-out of the program (i.e., choose not to be included). A local government can only do this if a majority of the voters approved the issue in a previous election.
