Ohio Electricity Supply

Residential Ohio Electric Rates

You can start saving on your Ohio electric rates, thanks to the deregulation of energy markets. It’s time to find the best rate for yourself, making economical choices about your home energy supplier and use, allowing you to cut costs each month.

Shipley Energy is a leading Ohio electric supplier, and we’re working hard to provide families like yours with affordable electric rates that can control your costs and keep things affordable all year long. We offer affordable electricity rates to customers in the Duke Energy territory.

How Does Deregulation Save You Money?

Ohio electricity utilities that send power to your home buy their power on the open market, and then sell it back to you at a non-fixed rate. Sometimes that means they’ll make a lot of money off of what they charge you, and other times they may make less. You previously didn’t have any say in where that electricity came from, but now you can make your voice heard.

Deregulation allows you to choose your electricity supply company, so you can select Shipley Energy as your electric supplier in Ohio. We aren’t under the same competitive rules, and we can offer you special pricing packages and discounts that will help you break free from a uniform, fluctuating market rate if you prefer.

The best news is that you can switch your electric supplier with no interruptions or visible changes. Simply enjoy knowing what to expect when the next bill from your utility arrives.

Benefits of Choosing an Energy Supplier

If you don't specify an electricity supplier, your utility company will buy energy on the open market and charge you the current going rate. This leaves you vulnerable to price changes on a month-to-month basis, as sudden spikes due to increased demand or infrastructure problems will drive up your bill. Unfortunately, these spikes can be impossible to anticipate, which makes budgeting difficult for many homes.

Choosing an energy supplier gives you more control over how much you pay for electricity. While Shipley Energy doesn't have any say in your utility provider's administrative and delivery fees, our plans can prevent your monthly bill from exceeding a specified amount per unit of energy. The main advantage of this is that it allows you to take advantage of our bulk buying power and enjoy greater certainty over your billing.

Why Choose Shipley?

Since deregulation, Ohio's electricity market has been flooded with independent providers, all vying for residential subscribers. While more choice is always good for homeowners — in fact, it was one of the main arguments for deregulation in the first place — it does require that you do some research to find a supplier that will deliver on their promises.

Shipley Energy has roots that date back to 1929. When Ohio deregulated its electricity market, we saw an opportunity to deliver the same great service and value we provide for customers who rely on us for propane, natural gas, heating oil, and other fuels.

We believe in educating our customers and helping them make informed decisions. Our goal isn't to make a quick buck in a new and uncertain market. It's to build customers for life. We'd be happy to go over your monthly bills and help you choose a plan that works for you.

Moving to Ohio?

If you're moving to Ohio, getting set up with the right electric supplier is probably one of many things you're dealing with. While it may not seem like the most important decision you'll make in the process, spending some time investigating the state's deregulated energy market can help you make an informed choice and avoid getting locked into an expensive, long-term contract.

Shipley Energy works with two of Ohio's largest utilities:

  • Dayton Power & Light: Dayton Power & Light serves a large portion of West Central Ohio, including, as the name implies, Dayton and its surrounding metropolitan area. It was founded in 1911, and today, it provides electric service to an estimated 500,000 customers.
  • Duke Energy: Duke Energy Ohio is a subsidiary of Duke Energy operating in the southern portion of the state, along with neighboring Kentucky. It provides electricity for more than 860,000 residential, commercial, and industrial customers, and natural gas service for an additional 538,000.

If Dayton Power & Light or Duke Energy serves the area you're moving to, you're in luck — you can benefit from Shipley Energy's electric pricing plans.

How It Works

Choosing an electric supplier isn't the same as choosing a utility company. In a deregulated market, suppliers buy electricity from a generation company, while the utility distributes it and handles the billing, infrastructure maintenance, and any issues that come up. Our role as a supplier is to get great rates for our customers and provide flexible pricing plans that work for any budget.

All you need to know to check pricing with Shipley Energy is your ZIP code and the name of your utility company. With that, you can look closely at your options and decide based upon a variety of criteria — including rate, term length, cancellation fees, and more. Compare Shipley Energy's plans against other Ohio electric suppliers, and we're convinced you'll see the value in working with us.

Choosing a Supplier in Three Steps

Choosing Shipley Energy as your electric supplier is easy — once you've reviewed your options and settled on the best plan:

  1. Call or sign up online
  2. Review and agree to the price plan
  3. Receive confirmation of enrollment

We will get in touch with your utility provider directly and initiate the change. There's no additional paperwork, no service delays, and no hidden fees.
