AEP Ohio customers to get up to $60 credit on electric bill

COLUMBUS — Ohioans who get their power from AEP Ohio could receive a credit of up to $60 on their bills this month.

The electric utility is issuing $84 million in refunds because of a settlement over charges it reached with the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel and other stakeholders late last year.

The one-time credit on June bills only applies to customers who purchased their power generation through AEP Ohio from August 2012 through May 2015. That means customers who shopped and bought their power from, for example, Direct Energy, in that time frame do not get a credit.

AEP Ohio is your default provider if you do not shop for power.

The credit amount depends on power usage. Customers who use 1,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a month will see a $60 credit, according to the company.”
