    What is the Electric Utility Company in Akron Ohio?

    Ohio Edison is the utility company for Akron Ohio.

    Under the Energy Choice Ohio program, you can choose your electricity supplier. You can pay the Standard Service Offer with Ohio Edison. Or you can choose one of the suppliers approved by the Public Utility Commission of Ohio.
