Residential Electric Rates

As a Public Power Community, the City of Cuyahoga Falls offers electricity at not-for-profit rates that are significantly lower than local investor owned utilities.  A rate that is advertised by for-profit companies as a price per kilowatt-hour (kWh) is not an apples-to-apples comparison to our rate. It is when all charges are added together that it can be shown how much cheaper Cuyahoga Falls Electric System power is than other companies and you see the pricing benefits of a public power system.
