AEP Energy has been great! They send you a reminder when your current rate is about to expire and renewing at a new low rate on their website was extremely easy. There is a nice rewards program also and they send fun, informative emails out every so often. I am very pleased with my AEP Energy experience!

Katrina G. Jefferson, OH

I was very happy to learn that AEP Energy has a 100% green energy option at a VERY competitive rate. In fact, my rate for the coming year was lower than the previous year. I know others who are looking for a green energy option and I am going to be sure they check out AEP Energy! Everyone should sign up for 100% green energy.

Peggy B. Camden, OH

AEP Energy is not only the best, but they also have competitive rates; far better than the other companies. I am never again switching from AEP Energy. They will have me for life.

Steve S. Athens, OH

As a repeat subscriber to AEP Energy’s renewable energy program, I have been very happy with every aspect of this service. The rates are fair, the website is easy to navigate and it was a simple process to switch to AEP Energy from our regular electricity provider. It is so important that our country expands its capacity for green energy sources, and I have been very pleased to be able to direct our household energy dollars toward support of wind power.
