The Community Energy Savers (CES) program is designed to empower residents and businesses to reduce energy usage in their community. By participating in CES, as a community member, you not only save energy and money in your homes and businesses, but you also help your community receive grants from AEP Ohio and Columbia Gas of Ohio that fund energy efficient projects within your community.

The CES program will be operating in the neighborhoods of Linden, Franklinton, Hilltop, Near East, Milo-Grogan, and University District in 2019 and 2020. For information on community goals, timelines, selected community project, and how you can participate, select one of the links below:
