Standard Choice Offer (SCO)
All Ohio residential and small business customers who have not selected an alternate gas
supplier through Vectren's natural gas Choice program receive their natural gas supply
at the Standard Choice Offer (SCO) price. Three companies - DTE Energy Supply, Direct
Energy and Hess Corporation - won the right to provide gas supply to Vectren customers
at the SCO price, which is determined in a competitive auction and approved by the
Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.
Regardless of the name of the supplier serving your home or business, all suppliers' monthly SCO prices are the same. Therefore, if a friend or neighbor is receiving SCO service but a different supplier is listed, you both are still paying the same monthly SCO price for your natural gas.
Vectren's charges for delivery service still appear under the line item entitled "Distribution and Service Charges." Regardless of whether you remain with an SCO supplier or choose another supplier through the Choice program, Vectren will continue to provide the same high quality natural gas delivery, pipeline maintenance and customer service you've come to expect, including maintaining responsibility for billing and responding to gas emergencies.
Residential and small commercial customers who are not eligible for the Choice program will receive their gas supply through Vectren's default sales service.
