According to Electric Choice , in 2013 Ohio’s average electric rate for all sectors was 9.49 cents per kWh with the energy efficiency and RPS in effect. Ohio’s electric rates are slightly higher than Illinois, which has the lowest electric rates in the region and also has an aggressive energy efficiency program and an RPS. But somehow the electric utilities continue to bang their drums of fear and make headway without any independent analysis.
