Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program

Rising costs for electric and natural gas have many wondering what their options are for keeping costs in check. The Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program, a partnership with Community Energy Advisors, can help. 

The program helps protect member energy budgets through education about current electric and natural gas costs. In addition, the program offers members information regarding available competitive supply options that may lower energy costs.

An easy first step is to share your current electric or gas bill for a free analysis.

The Farm Bureau program can serve members in the following utility regions: AEP Columbus Southern, AEP Ohio Power, AES, CenterPoint Energy, Columbia Gas of Ohio, Dominion Energy, Duke Energy, Illuminating Company, Ohio Edison, and Toledo Edison. 

Farm Bureau members who are served by energy cooperatives are already receiving lowest prices and are not eligible for the program.

Members in an eligible region initially receive a complimentary bill review.

Within two business days of submitting your electric and/or gas bills, the Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program team will: 

  • Review your supplier.
  • Determine your contract term and when your contract will end.
  • Verify your rate to make sure that it is consistent with your contract.
  • Show you where to find the supply rate on your bill.
  • Evaluate the available options for you to lock in a new fixed-rate at a start date that works with your existing contract(s).
  • Continue to be a resource for all of your energy-related questions.

If after the review you choose to sign up for the Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program, there will not be any disruption to your utility service. You will continue to receive the electricity or natural gas through your local utility but will now receive rate protection on one of your bill’s big line items, supply or generation. 

You will receive your utility bill as usual and your utility will still be responsible for responding to any emergencies or outages.

For questions, call our Ohio-based representative Dan Godinsky at 800-830-3501, or visit ofb.ag/energyprogram.

You might benefit from a utility bill review if:
  • You are exploring electric and gas supply rate options.
  • Your usage has increased unexpectedly.
  • Your monthly costs are going up.
  • You do not know if you are in a fixed contract for electric or gas supply.
  • You do not know what your rate is or where to find it on your bill.
  • You are getting calls from suppliers and are not sure what is the best fit.

To request a utility bill review, send recent copies of your electric and/or natural gas bills (including all pages) to:

Mail: 3725 Medina Rd, Ste. 112, Medina, OH 44256.

Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

I appreciate the benefit of having a strong voice in my corner. The extras that are included in membership are wonderful, but I'm a member because of the positive impact to my local and state agricultural communities.

I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

Farm Bureau involvement has taught me how to grow my professional and leadership experience outside of the workforce and how to do that in a community-centric way.

With not growing up on a farm, I’d say I was a late bloomer to agriculture. I feel so fortunate that I found the agriculture industry. There are so many opportunities for growth.

Knowing that horticulture is under the agriculture umbrella and having Farm Bureau supporting horticulture like it does the rest of ag is very important.

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.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
