COSE Electric Savings Program for Business and Home
COSE's Electric Savings Program provides both commercial and residential electric savings opportunities to COSE members, chamber partners, applicable chamber affiliates, and the open market.
Why should I enroll?
Electric rates and capacity prices are on the rise. Over the past couple of years, the boom in Ohio shale gas created an energy surplus, lowering natural gas prices. This abundance of natural gas, along with new EPA regulations has encouraged utilities to close their coal-fired plants in anticipation of building new gas-fired plants to generate electricity, reducing expenses and emissions.
The transition from the old to the new power plants has created uncertainty in the market and left fewer generating facilities to meet electric demands, driving electric rates and capacity prices up.

The best option is to enroll in a 3-year fixed rate, locking into a low price before rates inflate further.

The COSE Electric Savings Program is being managed by OnDemand Energy, an independent, objective consultant who has been helping consumers in the Midwest (PJM transmission territory) region shop for third-party options since 1995. OnDemand currently has relationships with all the major third-party suppliers, and between COSE's membership base and OnDemand's existing clients in PJM (30,000 accounts), the buying power and leverage represented is the greatest available in the state of Ohio.
Currently COSE has negotiated third-party pricing via OnDemand Energy that represents anywhere from 15 percent to 30 percent off the prevailing tariff rates. Now is an ideal time to lock in a third-party supply option.
