Consumers can compare Ohio energy rates at

Our goal at is to help home- and business-owners in deregulated states take advantage of the competitive energy rates in their town.

Shop For Energy, an online provider of energy information, rates, and services, announced today that Ohio home and business-owners can now lower their electric and natural gas bills by switching to a state-approved, independent energy supplier offering competitive energy rates.

In January 2001, a law known as “deregulation” changed the way Ohio consumers shopped for energy. Prior to deregulation, large utility companies like Columbia Gas of Ohio, Dayton Light and Power, Dominion East Ohio, Duke Energy, and Vectren Energy controlled Ohio’s energy market and rates. Following the passage of deregulation, however, independent Ohio energy suppliers entered the marketplace and began offering competitive energy rates. By restructuring the state’s energy industry, Ohio consumers had more options and a better chance of receiving lower energy rates and reduced monthly electric and gas bills.

“Our goal at is to help home- and business-owners in deregulated states take advantage of the competitive energy rates in their town,” said Christina Cleri, president of Shop For Energy. “Lower energy rates are out there -- it’s just a matter of finding them. Our website provides a fast, simple, and free way to compare Ohio energy rates and transfer service to an independent energy supplier. There are no gimmicks, no fine print, and no hidden fees. We simply want to educate consumers about their newfound energy options and hopefully help them receive lower monthly energy bills.”

In addition to offering competitive energy rates and budget-friendly billing plans, many independent Ohio energy suppliers also offer eco-friendly energy options that help reduce one’s carbon footprint.

“Consumers are learning more and more about how easy it is to ‘live green’ and use less energy to help the environment,” said Cleri. “Thankfully, energy companies are now jumping on board as well. After all, the best way to permanently reduce one’s energy bills is to use less electricity and natural gas at home and at work. Perhaps the second best way is to lock in lower energy rates. That’s where we can help.”
