To Concord Township Residents who have Ohio Edison as their electric company,
As customers of Ohio Edison, you recently received a letter about the township aggregation program with an electric rate of just under 7 cents per kilowatt. Some of you expressed concern that this is an increase of what you are currently paying for electric from Ohio Edison. Please see the email below the township received from First Energy parent company of Ohio Edison. Their rate on June 1, 2023 will jump to over 12 cents per kilowatt.
As trustees we just wanted to make sure you have all of the information as you decide to participate in the aggregation program or opt out.

AKRON, Ohio – FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE) is encouraging customers of its Ohio electric companies – Ohio Edison, The Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison – to evaluate electric supply offers from competitive suppliers that fit their budget and protect against rising energy prices this summer. Due to the results of recent competitive auctions, FirstEnergy customers who rely on their electric company for all aspects of service are expected to see an increase in the price they pay for electric generation beginning June 1.
Customer bills are divided into two parts: a charge from a FirstEnergy Ohio electric company for delivering electricity to a home or business, and a separate charge for the actual electricity used by a customer. For the second component, customers can shop and choose a competitive energy supplier that may be able to offer a lower price for generation. The electric company is required to purchase electricity through a competitive auction process for “non-shopping” customers who do not choose an energy supplier, and the rate is reflected in the “price to compare” listed on their monthly bills. FirstEnergy electric companies do not control the price of generation, which is provided to customers at cost.
Effective June 1, and subject to approval from the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), the prices to compare for each of FirstEnergy’s Ohio electric companies’ residential customers will be: Ohio Edison: 12.39 cents/kwh Illuminating Co.: 12.40 cents/kwh Toledo Edison: 12.41 cents/kwh A typical non-shopping FirstEnergy Ohio residential customer using 750 kilowatt hours can expect to see an increase to their total bill of approximately 47% from May to June. The prices, which update annually on June 1, are seasonal, with summer pricing in effect for the months of June through August, and winter pricing in effect for all other months. Winter prices are expected to remain higher than those seen this past winter.
“With energy rates elevated as we head into the hot, summer months, now is a great time to review your options so that you can select a rate or program that works best for you and your family,” said Mark Jones, vice president of customer engagement for FirstEnergy. “By selecting a competitive energy supplier that offers a rate lower than the price to compare on your bill, you may be able to pay less each month.”
To explore alternative electricity supplier options, customers can visit the PUCO’s Apples to Apples tool online at www.energychoice.ohio.gov. As customers evaluate their “price to compare” against alternative supplier offers, they should consider the price, plan structure (fixed or variable rate), contract terms and conditions, and any taxes, charges or fees that may apply. They can also explore ways to conserve energy this summer by visiting www.firstenergycorp.com/save_energy.

Dear Concord Township Residents,
Re: Rumpke Trash Rate Increase
Starting with the April 1 bill, you will see an increase in you trash and recycling collection rates from Rumpke. Your rate for the next year will be $21.45 per month. When the Township Trustees put this contract out to bid in late 2021 early 2022 we were facing inflation rates that were at a 40 year high. Our concern was that a 3-year contract could reflect those historic inflation rates projected over the three-year contract. Those concerns lead us to bid the contract with the yearly rate increase tied to the Consumer Price Index for Water/Sewer and Trash Collection Services. We felt this was the fairest way to bid the contract to avoid companies projecting a 10% yearly inflation rate over the life of the contract.
Starting April 1, 2023, we are in the second year of that contract. The CPI increase for Water/Sewer and Trash Collection Services is 4.42%. I have included the link to the data that was used for this calculation. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/CUSR0000SEHG
As a reminder, Rumpke does offer a senior citizen discount if you are 62 years old or older. If you qualify and are not taking advantage of that discount, please call Rumpke at 800-828-8171.
If you have any questions about the trash collection contract, you can reach out to any of the Concord Township Trustees.

ALL ITEMS NEED TO BE EMPTY, CLEAN & DRY
Recent changes in recycling markets have forced Regional Processing Centers to eliminate some of the items they will accept. The list below is the limit of what should be placed in your recycle cart. Other items may be recyclable, just not in this program.
