OHIO’S ELECTRIC RATE HISTORY COMPARES UNFAVORABLY WITH OTHER STATES

In 2008, when 127-SB221 was passed, the average Ohio household had an electric bill of about $90. Since the electric rates have increased over 20%. Thirty-three states had smaller percentage gains.

The comparison with states that enacted deregulation is even less favorable. Of all these states, Ohio has seen the largest rate increases. #
