ELECTRIC

The City of Wadsworth has owned and operated its own electric distribution system since 1916. Electricity is purchased from American Municipal Power of Ohio, a group of municipally owned and operated electric system throughout Ohio, and serves over 12,500 customers. Local ownership insures a greater commitment to service for residential, commercial, and industrial users. The municipal system also provides free street lighting, free electricity for city operations, and rates for customers which are on the average 40% lower than those available through privately-owned utilities. In addition, the system is highly reliable due to a well-designed loop system that prevents brownouts and minimizes outages. The City presently has seven substations.

WADSWORTH PEAK REWARDS
Save Money. Save Energy. Go Greener.

When you enroll, you'll earn $25 right away, and then $40 every summer that you participate in the Peak Rewards program. Visit the website at the link below or call 866.224.8287 to learn more!

TIME OF USE
Now, you can choose what you pay for electricity by when you decide to use it -- and take more control over your electricity costs than you've ever had before -- by voluntarily enrolling in the Time of Use / Wadsworth Right Time Pricing program. Web-programmable thermostats with in-home displays let you easily access important usage data from inside your home to help save money and energy by having your electric rate correspond with the time that energy is used -- higher prices during peak hours and lower prices during off peak. The homeowner chooses the best times to operate certain higher-energy appliances and systems to allow for savings on their utility bill.
