There has been an uptick of phone calls from cooperative members reporting they have received phone calls from telemarketers asking about their electric bills. This is a violation of Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) rules regulating competitive retail electric service providers.

These callers are offering short-term discounted rates and guaranteed savings if they switch wholesale electric providers.
