The Village of Fredericktown voters authorized, by majority vote, the creation of an electric and gas aggregation program. The village has selected a new supplier FirstEnergy Solutions, which begins with the October 2017 meter reads and should show on your November bill. The current natural gas supplier is Volunteer Energy Services, Inc. (VESI). If you are a resident or small business you are eligible to participate in these programs. These are opt-out programs. When the village signs a new contract with the current supplier or another supplier each resident will have the opportunity to Opt-out. If the resident does not Opt-out during a specific period of time, the residents will be part of the Village's electric or gas aggregation program for the duration of the contract. These plans may be canceled at any time without penalty.
