Energy efficiency is a boost to our economy. It is keeping electricity rates low – saving Ohioans money and creating new local jobs.

Saving YOU money

To date, Ohio utilities’ energy efficiency programs have generated almost $1 billion in net savings for Ohio ratepayers.  For every dollar invested in programs, Ohioans have saved three dollars.

Energy efficiency is cheaper than any new source of electricity.  The cheapest power plant for Ohio ratepayers is the power plant we don’t have to build because we’re using less electricity and saving money.

Benefits to Ohio’s Economy:

This state is home to a robust energy efficiency industry with almost 10,000 Ohioans employed and over 400 businesses.

Energy efficiency is helping Ohio manufacturers lower costs so they can be more competitive and create jobs.
