The Board of Trustees of Ross Township, Butler County, Ohio will hold two public hearings on the
Township’s Electric Aggregation Program Plan of Operation and Governance. The hearings will be held at
5:00pm and 6:00pm on December 7, 2023. Both hearings will take place at the Township Administration
Building at 4055 Hamilton Cleves Rd, Fairfield, Ohio 45014.
On November 7, 2023, the Ross Township voters passed Electric Aggregation which authorizes the
Township to form a governmental electric aggregation program for the purchase of electricity on behalf
of the Township residents and small businesses. The Township shall submit its Plan of Operation and
Governance to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) pursuant to PUCO Regulation and Ohio law.
The Township shall develop an opt-out aggregation program following the procedures set forth in Ohio
Revised Code Section 4928.20.
Subject to the final approval of the Board of Trustees, the Township will enter into an Electric Supply
Agreement with the selected supplier. The Supply Agreement may provide a fixed rate, a capped rate
and/or a variable rate for eligible customers that provide more price certainty and stability than the rates
currently offered by their local electric distribution utility. The offer is anticipated to begin on or after
April 2024, and is anticipated to be a term not to exceed 36 months.
All eligible customers of the local electric distribution utility(ies) will be included in the Township’s
aggregate unless they opt out. All customers eligible to be included in the aggregate will receive a mailing
notifying them of their right to opt out. The Notice will fully explain the rates, terms and conditions, and
general information regarding the Program. If a customer does not wish to be included in the program,
the customer will have 21 days to opt out of the program free of charge by returning an enclosed post
card or calling a toll free telephone number.
New customers moving into the Township will be given the opportunity to opt out in future mailings.
Customers moving within the Township will retain their status at the original rate.
Aggregate customers will continue to receive one bill from their local electric distribution utility.
