North American Power offers clean energy to Ohio
Customers will have the option to switch electricity providers to North American Power if they live in the Duke Energy or Dayton Power & Light service areas.
The electricity supplier notes that Ohio implemented electricity deregulation, at least in part, years ago, but much of the state has been slow to leave their utility companies.
"As we enter the Ohio market, part of our goal is to educate consumers about the benefits of switching from the utility," Kerry Breitbart, CEO of North American Power, said in a statement. "Customers can choose their cable company and their cell phone provider while customizing a benefits package that works for their lifestyle – why should their electricity be any different?"
North American Power hopes to encourage more residents to make the switch by offering the opportunity use substantially more renewable electricity than Ohio normally gets. While the U.S. Energy Information Administration reports Ohio used less than 1 percent green energy in 2010, North American Power sets a baseline of 25 percent renewable electricity and offers low prices for 100 percent renewable electricity.
