NOPEC mailing natural gas and electric enrollment letters to residents - April 12, 2023

Important Information About Electric Aggregation

The Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) is the largest nonprofit governmental energy aggregator in Ohio, providing electricity and natural gas aggregation services for more than 20 years to about 1 million residential and small business accounts in 242 communities and 19 counties. NOPEC is regulated by the PUCO, but as a nonprofit council of governments, it does not answer to shareholders and is not driven by profit.

NOPEC has always been a consumer-focused organization that operates and advocates for what’s best for our member communities and customers. For 20-plus years, NOPEC’s aggregation programs have resulted in competitive pricing to the benefit of our customers.

Natural Gas and Electric Aggregation:

The City of Parma's natural gas and electric aggregation programs have been affiliated with NOPEC for years.

NOPEC has been providing gas and electric to 126 communities in Northeast Ohio since 2001. This organization is a public entity that does not make a profit and does not charge the City of Parma to be a part of its program. NOPEC is the largest governmental aggregation in the United States and is able to provide competitive rates for residents and small business owners in its member communities.

For information on the fixed rate through NOPEC, residents can call NOPEC at 855-667-3201 for current rate information. The rates are competitive for fixed-rate programs. A variable rate is also available for those residents who wish to remain on a variable rate. To enroll in the variable rate, residents should call NOPEC at 855-667-3201.

NOPEC will continue to solicit Parma residents who are not part of the aggregation programs when those customers terminate contracts with other suppliers. Residents will receive opt-out notices from NOPEC, in which they will have 21 days to opt-out. When no action is taken, a resident automatically becomes part of Parma/NOPEC. If, however, a resident later chooses to leave the Parma/NOPEC program, he or she can do so at no charge.

Any questions regarding Parma’s Natural Gas and Electric Aggregation programs should be directed to NOPEC at 855-667-3201.

Residents are able to select another supplier to compare pricing of natural gas and electric suppliers from the Apples-to-Apples Rate Comparison Charts available on the Public Utilities website at
