Tell Your Legislators to Support HB 247

Ohio Consumers Deserve Competitive Choices in the Electric Utility Market

Throughout this year, AARP Ohio has kept you updated on utility legislation that would have severely hurt Ohio consumers’ pocketbooks. In contacting your legislators, you have helped us save Ohio consumers approximately $1 billion dollars in proposed utility bailouts in 2017 alone.

In a recent letter-to-the-editor in the Columbus Dispatch, AARP Ohio was mentioned as one of many groups fighting for Ohio consumers by supporting electric utility competition in the state.

We continue to advocate for pro-consumer legislation, such as HB 247, which encourages continued electric utility competition in Ohio and expands the authority of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) to protect consumers. AARP Ohio also issued testimony in support of HB 247 in a recent hearing at the Ohio Statehouse.

We encourage you to contact your legislator and tell them to support HB 247, and we will continue to keep you updated on this and other legislation throughout 2018.
