The City of Cleveland Heights is a member of NOPEC (The Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council) which is a non profit council of governments founded in the early 2000s, shortly after the state stopped regulating the natural gas and oil industries. NOPEC’s board of trustees consists of government officials from each of the participating counties.
Energy aggregation programs negotiate a group rate with natural gas and electricity suppliers for all participating communities. NOPEC which serves 220+ communities in Ohio and is in 13+ counties in Northeast Ohio is one of the largest energy aggregation programs in the United States. The program does not cost our City any extra money.
