Is everyone eligible for the program?

No, by law there are certain limitations on eligibility. All of the current participants in our community’s program will receive a notice of the new program rates, terms and conditions and continue to be eligible. Newly eligible residents or businesses must be located within the community limits. Furthermore, they must have received an Opt-Out Notice from Volunteer Energy. Here are the criteria for new member eligibility:

  1. Your local utility company must be Dominion Energy Ohio
  2. You must not have chosen a supplier on your own
  3. You must be a resident or business owner located within the community limits
  4. You must not be a PIPP (percentage of income payment program) customer
  5. You must not be in arrears on your bill payment
  6. You must not be a mercantile customer (natural gas commercial accounts using over 500 Mcf/year)
