The North East Ohio Public Energy Council (NOPEC) negotiated a paltry 6% discount for its member communities' residents, and a 4% discount for commercial customers from First Energy Solutions for residential electricity supplies. NOPEC released a statement on their Website today, see here.
The following picture is taken from NOPEC's website and lists the Lake County member communities.
A 6% discount is all we get? NOPEC...you let us down! We had a 10% discount this year! Times are tough...companies want business. All you got us was 6%?
According to the article NOPEC negotiated with First Energy Solutions (FES) a one time $12 million grant for energy conservation in FES' service area.
The press release goes on to say that FES will save NOPEC residential and commercial members $19 million through 2019.
A 6% discount is letting FES off too easy.
