In November 2005, Xenia residents passed a ballot measure authorizing the City to implement a Natural Gas Aggregation Program and enter into service agreements for the sale and purchase of natural gas. Since the adoption of the Plan of Governance, most recently updated in January 2018 (Resolution 2018-C), the City has gone through several RFP processes seeking savings.
How to Participate
Eligible Xenia residents and small businesses are automatically enrolled in the Aggregation Program once it begins, but can opt-out if they choose as directed in the opt-out letter. Resident who opted out previously and would like to now opt in may call the City's Aggregation Consultant at 419-491-1040 to re enroll.
Customers enrolled in the Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP Plus), are not eligible for natural gas and electric aggregation. PIPP Plus is an extended payment arrangement based on a percentage of the household income for customers who are at or below 150% of the federal poverty income guidelines.
Customers enrolled under individual contracts with suppliers as part of a natural gas choice program are also not included in the City Aggregation Program. These customers will not appear on eligible customer lists provided to the governmental aggregator or the governmental aggregators chosen supplier. If you recently switched to a supplier, there is a possibility your name was not removed from the eligible customer list. If you do not wish to be switched to the aggregation’s supplier, you should return the opt-out notice. You will want to talk to your chosen supplier if you consider switching to the aggregation’s supplier to find out if there are any penalties for the early cancellation of the contract.
