The Bethel Township Trustees of Clark County recently accepted a contract for the next cycle of electric aggregation.

These rates will affect every home in Bethel Township, including New Carlisle and Donnelsville, except for those already enrolled in an alternate supply program or those who receive PIPP or other forms of assistance.

Opt-out letters will be sent out soon to every eligible household, and unless these forms are completed, you will be enrolled in the township aggregation rate.

The new contract is a fixed rate for two years. The rate for DP&L customers will be 5.588 cents per kilowatt hour, and Ohio Edison customers will pay 6.393. Level billing, or budget billing, will be an option for all customers in the new aggregation contract, unlike last year, when it was not offered.

The township worked with the aggregation firm regarding some residents in the township who adamantly requested that they not receive any more opt-out letters. These residents, who spoke with trustees last year, will still receive opt-out letters as there is no way for them to be tracked.

The new cycle is set to begin around the first of October, but will depend upon your own billing cycle.

There is no fee to opt-out of the aggregation program at any time.
