First Energy Rates To Double In June

Posted on

Ohio Electricity Prices to Skyrocket June 1

First Energy SSO rates are doubling on June 1! Find out how you can save more on your Ohio electric bills all year long!
The problem with skyrocketing rates is who they fall on. First Energy SSO rates are taking off on June 1! Switch and save now on your Ohio electricity bills

Ohio First Energy customers will see their default rate double on June 1. This means that the PTC for three of Ohio's northern electric utilities will increase 10.3 cents per kWh in a few weeks. If you are on the default SSO rate, what will this mean for your bills? What are your other options? Let us show you how the First Energy rates doubling in June will affect you.

First Energy Hiking Your Summer Electric Rates

This rate increase will affect customers across northern Ohio and will last the rest of the year until May 2024.. Customers on the standard service offer in Toledo, Akron, and Cleveland will all see higher rates but at slightly differing amounts. Customers who’s bills are from Toledo Edison will see their monthly bill go up from $71.45 to just under $103 a month. Ohio Edison customers will see slightly less at $100. Finally, customers with The Illuminating Company will see their bills average around $98. This is on average a $30 increase per month. And with summer temperatures predicted to be high this could spell longer running AC systems and high electric bills.

Shop Low First Energy Area Rates Now

Natural gas rates have fallen to three year lows so electricity prices are lower, too. But as soon as the summer cooling season starts, demand will pull prices back up. That means now is the time to shop for a new electricity plan to lock in a low rate for 12 month or longer. And though shopping for a rate may have your bills looking higher for the next two months, securing a fixed rate now will keep your bills free from skyrocketing First Energy rates. Plus, there are tons of low priced rates in Ohio cities for every situation available.

Shopping around now gives you a chance to check out the company and make sure they’re legit. You can check the company’s rating to ensure you’re going with the best option.
