Public Notice: Public Hearing on the Liberty Township

PUBLIC NOTICE: PUBLIC HEARING ON THE LIBERTY TOWNSHIP, BUTLER COUNTY ELECTRIC AGGREGATION PROGRAM PLAN OF OPERATION AND GOVERNANCE The Board of Trustees of Liberty Township, Butler County, Ohio will hold two public hearings on the Township's Electric Aggregation Program Plan of Operation and Governance. The hearings will be held at 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. on January 28, 2020. Both hearings will take place at the Township Meeting Center located at 6400 Princeton Road, Liberty Township, OH 45011. On November 5, 2019, Liberty Township voters passed Electric Aggregation which authorizes the Township to form a governmental electric aggregation program for the purchase of electricity on behalf of the township residents. The township shall submit its Plan of Operation and Governance to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) pursuant to PUCO Regulation and Ohio law. The township shall develop an opt-out aggregation program following the procedures set forth in Ohio Revised Code Section 4928.20. Subject to the final approval of the Township Board of Trustees, the township will enter into an Electric Supply Agreement with the selected supplier. The Electric Supply Agreement may provide a fixed rate, a capped rate and/or a variable rate for eligible customers that provide more price certainty and stability than the rates currently offered by Duke Energy-Ohio. The offer is scheduled to begin in early to mid- Summer of 2020, and is anticipated to be for a 1, 2 or 3 year term. All eligible customers (Duke Energy-Ohio customers) to be included in the township's aggregate will be included unless they opt out. All customers eligible to be included in the township's aggregate will receive a mailing notifying them of their right to opt out. The Notice will fully explain the rates, terms and conditions, and general information regarding the Program. If a customer does not wish to be included in the program, the customer will have 21 days to opt out of the program free of charge by returning an enclosed post card, visiting the supplier's website for the township or calling a toll free telephone number. New customers moving into the township will be included in the aggregate unless they exercise their right to opt out of the aggregate. Customers moving within the township will retain their status at the original rate. Aggregate customers will continue to receive one bill from Duke Energy-Ohio. 1-13,1-20/2020
