Overall the best company for natural gas service.

Hazel G. Cleveland, OH

I chose AEP energy because of their competitive rates and they also seem to want to keep you as a customer after your contract is up. They are also more personable than any other supplier that I had in the past.

Great price and always reliable.

Clarence P. Cleveland, OH

I have found AEP’s natural gas and electric rates to be among the lowest. Low rates along with AEP’s long standing leadership in energy makes it easy for me to be a costumer of an established energy leader with a reliable reputation.

Daniel C. Brooklyn, OH

I encourage Cleveland residents to enroll for AEP Energy’s natural gas services. Their hassle-free enrollment process is simple, and they’re upfront with pricing.

Robert J. Medina, OH

I chose AEP Energy from a combination of their reputation, rates, and term length. I was surprised to have a live person answer the phone immediately. The enrollment process could not have been easier. The associate I spoke with was very friendly and wanted to make sure all my questions were answered. It felt like she was personally responsible for my satisfaction. I was very pleased about the entire process.

Mark P. Cleveland Heights, OH

I had switched to AEP a couple years ago and was very surprised at the fact that there is no early termination fee. With AEP, I can check the rates when I want and if the rate is better for my budget at that time, I can re-enroll and start a new contract. If it isn’t I can continue with my current contract. I also was surprised that I earned some rewards with AEP in their “reward store,” which I ended up cashing in for a Google Home Mini with a LED lightbulb.

Tony C. Cleveland, OH

AEP [Energy] customer service is first- rate!! Re-enrollment process is quick and easy. Rep. is very knowledgeable, polite and professional. Thank you!!

You should consider enrolling in AEP Energy as your natural gas supplier. They have a hassle free enrollment process and are completely upfront with their pricing.

Robert J. Medina, OH

AEP Energy offered a plan sourced from 100% wind-generated, renewable energy. Not only did it meet my aspirations, it was very cost-effective. The 18-month plan was very competitive with other renewable and conventional energy providers.

Ed N. Westlake, OH

Whenever I receive a better rate from another supplier, I contact AEP Energy and renegotiate my rate without incurring any penalty. AEP Energy is by far the best and the easiest to work with.

John W. Independence, OH

AEP Energy offers great rates for longer terms without cancellation fees. When AEP [Energy] posted a rate lower than my already great rate, it was easy to work with their customer service representative to switch to the lower rate. Great service with no strings attached.
