Do I need to call my local utility company to cancel service?

No. AEP Energy contacts your utility company about your switch. But remember, your local utility still delivers your energy, handles maintenance, and sends you your bill.

Who do I call if there is an outage?

Your local utility company will still manage any maintenance issues or emergency situations.

What do I do if I have a billing question?

Your monthly statement is still sent and managed by your local utility company. Please call them with questions.

What if I want to cancel?

Most AEP Energy plans come with no fees for canceling before the end of your agreement. Be sure to review the terms and conditions of your contract, though, before making any decisions.

Industry Overview

How does Energy Choice work?

  • In the old days, the same company that generated energy also delivered it. That led to monopolies, which affected prices and service.

  • Many states passed rules that separated the energy producers, suppliers, and deliverers. This helped eliminate monopolies.

  • A limited number of companies in the U.S. generate electricity from raw materials. These producers sell that energy to suppliers.

  • Suppliers, like AEP Energy, buy energy from producers so customers have access to more options. They work with local utilities to deliver that energy to your home.

  • No matter which supplier you choose, your local utility company uses its lines and pipes to deliver your energy. They also read meters, do repairs and send your bills.

  • Access to multiple suppliers means you have the power to select a company that provides the service, price, and innovation you prefer.
