How is the City able to choose a supplier on my behalf?

The community must vote to allow a City to become a Government Aggregator. There are two types of programs offered to residents; "opt-in" or "opt-out" and the community as a whole must decide which program it prefers. In November 2000, Munroe Falls residents voted to allow the City to choose the supplier and to have an "opt-out" program. "Opt-out" programs are the most common types of aggregation programs because they result in higher participation that usually results in lower rates. 

In Ohio, with an "opt-out" program, each eligible resident is automatically enrolled in the program unless they notify the supplier that they DO NOT wish to participate.
