Energy  Aggregation on November 7, 2023 Ballot

Lincoln Heights Village Council has decided to place electric aggregation issues on the November 7, 2023 ballot. If this issue passes, the Village will register to become a certified aggregator with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO). This will allow Village officials to negotiate utility rates for the electric use for residents and small businesses that use Duke Energy Ohio.

Aggregation is the process by which the Village would negotiate a bulk price on the electric for its residents and small businesses. Individual consumers would the decide if they wanted to opt-out of the negotiated price. If approved by the voters, residents would see no change in their electric services. Duke Energy Ohio would continue to manage service and the aggregation rate will be a line item on the Duke bill.

Residents will see the following language on their ballots this November:
Issue 7 - Electric Aggregation
"Shall the Village of Lincoln Heights have the authority to aggregate the retail electric loads located in the Municipality, and for that purpose, enter into services agreements to facilitate for those loads the sale and purchase of electric, such aggregation to occur automatically except where any person elects to opt out?"

This is a completely voluntary program. Residents will be given the choice to opt-out of the program if they do not wish to participate.
