NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARINGS
Notice is hereby given that on December 4, 2018 commencing at 6 p.m. and again on December 13, 2018 commencing at 6 p.m. at the East Cleveland City Hall, 14340 Euclid Ave. East Cleveland, OH 44112, the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council (“NOPEC”), on behalf of the East Cleveland City Council and Mayor will hold public hearings with respect to the Plan of Operations and Governance for the aggregation of competitive retail natural gas (the “Aggregation Program”), as previously authorized by such members pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code Section 4929.26. The Aggregation Program will apply automatically to all eligible customers of retail natural gas within the jurisdiction of East Cleveland, except for those who elect to opt-out. Customers may opt-out without charge during a designated opt-out period prior to the initiation of service under the Aggregation Program and approximately every two years thereafter. NOPEC seeks to provide low-cost natural gas for consumers by selecting a supplier through a negotiation process and leveraging combined resources and buying power of member communities in NOPEC. The Plan of Operations and Governance addresses the following topics regarding the Aggregation Program: (1) goals, operations and funding; (2) consumer participation, including terms of opting-out; (3) customer care; (4) organization structure and management of NOPEC; and (5) the steps toward establishing the Aggregation Program.
