I was looking for a 100% renewable power source for my home in Maryland and AEP Energy was my choice. I love knowing my home is powered by wind energy. Plus the enrollment process was super easy, they had the best rates with the least restrictions on terms and cancellations and they are pro-active about customer service.

After comparing approved electricity providers from a list provided by my local utility, AEP Energy stood out with the lowest rates and no fees. The application process was quick and painless. Approval was granted in a short period of time. There was great communication from the company, and I look forward to earning rewards.

Susan C. Churchville, MD

I originally switched to AEP Energy to receive low rates and no cancellation fees, but I was very impressed with the customer service I received when renewing my contract. I have since recommended AEP Energy to a close friend, who indeed signed on, and I will continue to encourage other friends and neighbors to switch to AEP Energy.
