AEP will remind you when your contact is up. I had other companies not tell me and double my rate, and I was stuck with it for several months until I got transferred to new company. I’ve been with AEPE for a few years now and have never had any problems.

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
