NOPEC Warns of Imposters

NOPEC, a nonprofit energy supplier, is warning local residents of a door- to-door solicitors posing as NOPEC employees in several northeast Ohio Communities.

The agency does not go door-to-door or call residents or small business to enroll them into the organization’s natural gas or electric aggregation programs. If your community is a member of NOPEC and you are eligible to join the aggregation, you will be notified by mail.

If someone knocks on your door posing as a NOPEC employee during normal business hours, ask for a business card or capture as much information as you can (company name, solicitor’s name, a phone number, copy of any paperwork/brochures they offer you, make, color and license plate number of car etc.) and file a report. You can also call the Ohio Public Utilities Commission’s call center at 800-686-7826 to report suspicious activity. After normal business hours call NOPEC’s customer care center at 855-667-3201 to report the encounter.
