Clean Energy Columbus is the City of Columbus’ community choice aggregation program, providing cleaner energy and competitive rates for residents and small businesses in Columbus. With the ambitious goal for our community to be carbon neutral by 2050 - to ensure healthy, vibrant neighborhoods and community for generations to come - Clean Energy Columbus plays a big role in creating our sustainable future.
Community Choice Aggregation is the process through which the City of Columbus contracts for energy on behalf of it's residents and small businesses. Through a competitive bid process, the City has contracted with AEP Energy to provide 100% Ohio-based clean energy and supply the Clean Energy Columbus program.
With the start of Clean Energy Columbus, the City of Columbus joins over 400 communities (combined Electric and Natural Gas) in the state of Ohio who utilize community choice aggregation for their residents. Columbus’ program will be the largest in Ohio, and the 3rd largest in the country.
