Some residents have contacted Sylvania Township as a result of having received a letter offering the ability to opt-out of a recently-negotiated electric-generation fee which will be part of their electric utility bill.
Some concern may have been raised due to an unfamiliar name–Energy Harbor–as the generator. Energy Harbor is the company which, in effect, came out of the bankruptcy proceedings involving First Energy Solutions, a sister company of Toledo Edison.
Sylvania Township residents, as well as residents of all unincorporated areas of Lucas County, are part of an aggregation meant to give greater leverage when negotiating utility rates.
Mark Frye, of Palmer Energy, a consultant for the aggregation, said the letter was sent to comply with state law.
Sylvania Township has no involvement in the process.
