The Ross Township Board of Trustees has decided to place energy aggregation issues on the November 7, 2023 ballot. Volatile energy pricing and instability in the market have necessitated action by the Ross Township Board of Trustees. The Board is committed to finding ways to stabilize utility costs for residents in this uncertain market. Energy aggregation is a tool that local governments can use to give residents another option.
Two separate issues will be placed on the ballot. One issue is for Natural Gas (Issue 11) and one issue is for Electric (Issue 10). If these issues pass, Ross Township will register to become a certified aggregator with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio. This will allow township officials to negotiate utility rates for the gas and electric use for residents and small businesses.
The Ross Township Board of Trustees has chosen Energy Alliances Inc. as a consultant. They will assist with certification for the township, the management of the program, negotiate rates from energy suppliers and maintain a level of customer service for Ross Township residents.
