NOPEC: City of Richmond Natural Gas Aggregation Program

Voters last November approved an ‘opt-out’ natural gas aggregation program for our community.  The program will soon be available to all residents and small businesses in the City.  The theory behind aggregation is simple: By using bulk purchasing power, greater savings can be passed on to our residents and businesses. Through an aggregation program, our residents will join together with over 185 other communities to negotiate better prices and consumer protections.  Without aggregation, individual households are then responsible for selecting an electric and natural gas supplier that would not offer the same low pricing and protections available from an aggregation.

The Richmond Heights City Council has selected the Northeast Ohio Public Energy Council or NOPEC to best manage our new natural gas aggregation program.  NOPEC is a nonprofit government aggregation that has become the largest energy aggregation in the nation. NOPEC provides low-cost electricity and natural gas to more than 750,000 customers in 13 Northeast Ohio counties.

Free Trees Available to Euclid Creek Watershed Residents

The Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District is currently accepting enrollment forms for the Euclid Creek Streamside Tree and Shrub Planting Program. Anyone who owns streamside (riparian) property in the Euclid Creek Watershed is eligible and encouraged to enroll. No stream is too small! Program participants will receive free tree and shrub seedlings to plant along their backyard streams, in order to establish forested riparian, or streamside, buffers.

This is a great opportunity for residents to get directly involved in the preservation of the Euclid Creek Watershed, which includes parts of Cuyahoga and Lake Counties.
