Consumers� Counsel Reports on Ohio Market

January 2002 - The Ohio Consumers' Counsel (OCC) released a "report card" on the first year of Ohio's competitive electricity market, finding that the market experience "has been generally positive for the state's residential customers but that there is substantial room for improvement."

Among the positive outcomes noted are that more than 600,000 residential customers (out of 4.1 million eligible) are saving money by switching to a new supplier, either through individual actions or as members of aggregation groups, and one new supplier is "bringing renewable energy sources to Ohio." (a reference to Green Mountain Energy Company's supply deal with the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council.)

However, noting that opportunities for customer switching and savings have not been uniform across the state, the OCC concludes that "certain state and federal actions are needed to promote meaningful competition and increase opportunities for savings in all areas of the state."
