We made the switch to AEP Energy for our electric supply due to an increase in our rate from the former supplier. After researching several companies on, AEP (Energy) came out on top for low cost and no fees. The switching process was very quick and stress-free. Their rewards program is also another benefit that will payoff big-time because we already recommended AEP (Energy) to our friends.

Will C. Reading, PA

I chose AEP Energy because they offer 100% green energy for a rate that is not much more than other electrical companies charge. It is easy to enroll with them, and they offer a variety of options for a contract. I am an avid recycler and environmental advocate and I firmly believe we need to use more green resources in energy production.
