The City is a member of the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) for its electric aggregation program. NOPEC is a not-for-profit made up of more than 220 Ohio communities (including Shaker Heights) that buys electric in bulk from NextEra Energy Services Ohio, LLC (NESO). Residents in NOPEC communities are automatically enrolled, but may opt out at any time. NOPEC customers have several choices, including a fixed-rate option and 100 percent renewable option.
Customers may switch to another supplier by canceling their NOPEC/NextEra contract at no cost. For more information and to compare rates visit the NOPEC website or the PUCO's Apples to Apples Comparison website.
