When I first decided to change my supplier, AEP [Energy] had the best rates that I could find. I signed up for a 2-year contract and immediately saw a great reduction in my monthly bill. AEP Energy had been great to work with and the customer service representatives are extremely helpful in finding you the best offer they can. And no cancellation fees like most other suppliers. AEP Energy has found a lifetime customer.
