CINCINNATI-  On March 14, the City of Cincinnati announced it had chosen Dynegy to provide electric service for all city residents, as part of its electric aggregation program. Dynegy provided the lowest-cost choice in both “brown” and “green” options. Cincinnati opted for the “green” option, utilizing Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) from solar, wind and geothermal generation. This is the third time the city has chosen the “green” option since it first aggregated all residents into a single buying group in 2012. This is an opt-out program, so all city residents not currently under contract to other electric providers are enrolled and will enjoy an estimated savings of $51 per year over Duke Energy’s standard service offer.
