    Toledo Edison History

    With roots that to back as early as 1853 to Toledo Gas Light & Coke Co, Toledo Edison’s electricity operations began in 1881 when it incorporated Toledo Brush Electric & Power Co. and brought arc lighting to downtown Toledo. The name Toledo Edison first appeared in 1912 when various rail and electricity predecessors, including Toledo Railways & Light Co, merged.

    The company continued to acquire utilities and expand from the 1920s throughout the 20th century. They also began generating electricity with nuclear power, culminating in the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant in Oak Harbor in 1977. Toledo Edison (formerly NYSE: TED) was publicly traded until 1986 when it merged with The Illuminating Company to form Centerior Energy. Centerior merged with Ohio Edison in 1997 to form FirstEnergy.

    Utility Highlights

    In a deregulated electricity plan state like Ohio, having a well-designed and comprehensive bill is important. Toledo Edison provides clear, easy to read billing for their electricity customers that explain, in detail, each charge and what it’s for, from the electricity plan charges to the electricity utility charges. There’s a lot of information on these small bills. Understanding your electric bill is a great tool to get you started saving a bundle.

    Some of the most valuable items on a Toledo Edison bill include:

    • Your usage history. Perhaps the most important part of the billing, you’ll find it on the lower left of the page. This includes your monthly usage in kilowatt-hours (kWh), broken down by month, as well as a chart of your monthly usage so you can see the months in which you use the most electricity. They also include your average daily use, as well as the average daily temperature for the current month, and the same month a year prior, so you can see the effects of changes you’re making for the better.
    • Charges from your alternate supplier. If you’ve chosen an alternate supplier or provider, you’ll see that information near the middle of the right side of the page. The most important part of this section is the rate, since you can use this to compare to find a better plan. If your electricity plan seems unusually expensive, you may want to compare your current rate against other rates on the market to see if you can get a better deal elsewhere.
    • Price to compare. You have the right to choose another electricity plan in Ohio, but you can also stay with a local utility. If you choose to stay with your electricity utility, this “price to compare” section on the left of the page shows the price you’ll pay instead of the charge from your current supplier. It’s a useful number to help you see if you’re still really getting a good deal by buying an electricity plan.

    Toledo Edison is an Ohio utility you can trust. Little things like well-designed electricity bills may seem insignificant until you don’t have them available. They want to ensure that its utility customers have all the information they need to make an informed decision about future electricity plans at their fingertips.
