Ohio Issues Status on Retail Electric Competition

LCG, April 4, 2001--The first three months of "electric choice" have brought few shopping choices but welcome consumer protection standards for Ohio's residential electric customers, according to state Consumers' Counsel Robert S. Tongren.

In a report issued today on the status of retail electric competition in Ohio and its impact on the state's residential consumers, Tongren noted that "competition has been slow to develop, choices have been slow to materialize and savings have been slow to accumulate," residential consumers are benefiting in other ways.

Though alternative providers of electricity have not swamped householders with offers, "it's equally true that they aren't being subjected to the kind of risks that Californians are facing," said Tongren. "From our perspective at the Ohio Consumers' Counsel, that's a fair and reasonable trade-off."

Tongren warned out-of-state businessmen that Ohio will not tolerate "market abuses such as thoseseen in California. We will react swiftly and forcefully to ensure the continued integrity of Ohio'scompetitive electric marketplace to protect the interests of the state's residential consumers."

Forty-nine other states are making hay on California's pasture.
