About energy deregulation in Ohio

Ohio took the first step toward energy deregulation in 1997, when the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) began to unbundle natural gas delivery charges – costs charged by the utility company to distribute the gas – from the cost of the actual gas itself. This allowed customers to purchase gas from different suppliers, and choose the right rates and plans for their needs.

Prior to 1999, eight entities controlled the vast majority of Ohio’s electricity market. These Investor-Owned Utilities dictated how most energy was produced and delivered to customers’ homes and businesses.

However, with the passing of the Ohio Electric Restructuring Act in July of 1999 (also known as Senate Bill 3), the state ultimately authorized the deregulation of its electric power industry and make way for a more competitive, consumer-focused market. Senate Bill 3 went into effect in 2001.

Currently, nearly 2.4 million electric customers and 1.7 million natural gas customers are participating in energy choice programs within the state of Ohio.
