Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program

Ohio Farm Bureau is partnering with an Ohio-based energy management firm, Community Energy Advisors, to establish the Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program.
The program will assist members in making energy choices, shopping for energy, learning about rebate options and the best ways to manage their energy resources.

“We have worked together to develop this program to provide education, protection and savings to members statewide,” said John Marihugh, OFBF director of member services. “The program can provide highly competitive pricing to members in shoppable electric and natural gas regions.”

Ohio Farm Bureau’s newest member benefit takes the guesswork out of energy costs and gives members an opportunity to save money. It doesn’t matter if power is generated through a cooperative or a municipal utility, or in one of the large, for-profit utility regions, the OFBF Energy Program provides tips and tools to help better manage electric and natural gas costs. The program evaluates rebate opportunities that can add up to savings for Farm Bureau members. Members served by for-profit utilities may see an average 10 percent cost savings on electricity or natural gas through a process that requires suppliers to compete for the member’s business.

It also provides alerts regarding scams and fraudulent activity to protect member’s homes and businesses, no matter what part of the state members live in.

“For many members, energy is one of the biggest costs they assume they have no control over,” said Kevin Lauterjung, principal and co-founder of Community Energy Advisors, noting that “Farm Bureau staff went through a rigorous process with us” to ensure that all members find value in the program.

Farm Bureau chose to partner with Community Energy Advisors because of its experience in designing and managing programs for member organizations, understanding utility tariffs and supplier pricing and strong credibility in the industry.
For a limited time, all members can sign up for the OFBF Energy Program Sweepstakes and be eligible to win $500.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington, D.C.
