POWER4SCHOOLS ELECTRICITY PROGRAM
Along with partners OSBA, OASBO and BASA, the OSC provides a volume purchasing discount with FirstEnergy Solutions for a full electric product covering the cost of electric generation, transmission and capacity through December 31, 2019.

Beginning June 2017, P4S member districts will pay $0.0518/kWh for full service electricity through the end of the agreement in 2019.

The P4S Program has not only saved school districts millions of dollars in the past, but has also leveraged the strength of over 250 school districts in representing the interests of students and taxpayers before the PUCO (Public Utilities Commission of Ohio).
