I chose AEP Energy for my new residency gas supplier after comparing the cost. They are fixed rate and 24 month locked rate. I’m very pleased to say they are the most reasonable price for gas distribution from local Columbia Gas company. The online sign up experience was very simple! The best part of being their customer again is customer service and support. So glad to reunite again!

-Teresa M. Chillicothe, OH

I have been an AEP Energy customer for electricity for two years. When my contract was expiring, I went to compare AEP Energy prices and terms to other suppliers. AEP Energy had the best prices with no cancellation fees. After researching, I ended up adding AEP Energy as my Natural Gas provider as well. The phone specialist was helpful and answered all of my questions.

-Cathy P. Columbus, OH

Last week I renewed my contracts with AEP Energy for both electricity and gas for the third time. The rates for both services went DOWN since the last contracts and beat the rates provided by our political region’s contracts for the same services. Service provision is reliable. On rare occasions when service is interrupted, we are notified via text and kept up to date on when service will be restored. My few interactions with AEP Energy personnel have all been positive. They are always focused on problem resolution. I highly recommend AEP Energy to anyone looking for a new provider.

-Carole W. Westerville, OH

We have been with AEP Energy for years now and have not considered leaving, their pricing is always great and if you want to leave for some reason there is no contract fee. One bill for all is also the reason I like it.

-Robin S. Dublin, OH

AEP Energy was really easy to sign up with. They offer a longer term contract which I find to be very convenient and there is no fee if you decide to switch providers. They offered the lowest price that I found and the reps are super nice and very knowledgeable.
