Electric Aggregation

Electric Aggregation Council Hearings

The City is currently considering the merits of joining the Sustainable Ohio Public Energy Council (SOPEC), in order to offer the community a new electric aggregation program.

Following a presentation to City Council in June, a series of community meetings were held in August, to inform residents about the program and obtain feedback.

In the month of September, the proposed program will come before Council for final review and Council direction. If approved by Council, an electric aggregation program could be available to UA households by late fall/early winter.

The City previously established its ability to act as an aggregator in 2000 – a process that required voter approval. It wasn’t until 2012 that market conditions proved favorable enough for the launch of an electric aggregation program in Upper Arlington. After two contracts, the program was suspended mid-2015 because market conditions were once again no longer favorable to a City aggregation program.

Formed in 2014, SOPEC has grown to include approximately 30 communities across Ohio, with a collective buying power representative of one of the largest customers in the State. SOPEC’s goal is to provide simple, valuable and reliable public energy programs that help communities achieve their local energy and sustainability goals.

Council is expected to formally review and vote on the proposal this fall, per the following schedule:

  • 7 pm, Monday, September 11 – Plan of Operations and Governance Public Hearing, Proposed Aggregation Program First Reading / Public Hearing
