In 2001, Toledo and Lucas County formed the Northwest Ohio Aggregation Coalition to search for lower cost electricity and natural gas rates for everyone. NOAC participates in all relevant rate making cases at the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. If you are new to the area, contact Toledo Edison and Columbia Gas and ask to join Toledo's aggregation programs.

Natural Gas Aggregation

The City's current natural gas aggregation program ends with the May 2024 billing period. Unfortuantely, NOAC was not able to secure a supplier to provide a lower price than what Columbia Gas will charge for the summer months. Beginning with the June 2024 meter read, Toledo residents' gas price will be Columbia Gas Standard Choice Offer (SCO) rate which is the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX) rate plus $0.166 per ccf. Beginning with the September 2024 meter reading, you will be automatically enrolled in the new program with Archer Energy. The rate is set at the NYMEX rate plus $0.1599 per ccf, and is secured through May 2026. If you would like to opt out, that information will come to you in the fall of 2024.
