Energy Choice Information

Customers served by Ohio’s regulated natural gas companies have the opportunity to choose a different company to provide their natural gas. Under the natural gas choice program, the local utility still delivers the gas to your home, but you can choose the company that provides the natural gas. The following tools can be used to help make an informed decision when considering switching suppliers.
