Our schools and city need to eclipse 300 points through AEP Ohio’s Community Energy Savers program between now and December 23, 2019, to earn the $40,000 grant. Every point counts, so city and school staff would really greatly appreciate your help in obtaining our 300 point community goal. The grant funds would be used toward a new community playground on the New Albany-Plain Local Schools campus.


There are three easy steps to take to participate and performing all three will earn four points for the grant.

  1. Download the “It’s Your Power” App (1 point) from and login to the app using your AEP Ohio account credentials. This app allows you to see how much energy your home uses around the clock to be able to make informed choices to save money and energy.
  2. Once the app is downloaded, use it to request a free AEP Ohio Energy Bridge (2 points). This energy bridge will allow you to control your energy devices remotely, pinpoint times of high use in real time, and set a budget to save money and conserve energy.
  3. Take an Online Energy Home Profile to get a FREE energy efficiency kit (1 point) and receive recommendations for saving energy in your home. Access this kit to build your Home Energy Profile by using the app or by going to www.AEPOhio.Com/Kit.
