Error causes delay in bill delivery to Cleveland zip codes 44110 & 44119

Cleveland Public Power learned this week that customers on the City’s northeast side, specifically in United States Postal codes 44110 and 44119 experienced a delay in receiving their August bills. These bills were sent out approximately three weeks late and when received this week, the bills were already past due.

We apologize for this error and want to assure you there will be no penalties assessed because of this mistake.

The September bills should be going out early next week, but should not reflect any past due amounts associated with this delay. Please pay your bill as you normally would.

Thank you to the customers who brought this error to our attention, and again we apologize for this delay.

Remember you can pay your bill online by  clicking here. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Customer Service at 216.664.4600.

Talk Back Tuesday: What is the EAC?

It’s Talk Back Tuesday, and this week we are responding to a customer inquiry into the EAC or Energy Adjustment Charge listed on your monthly bill.

So during a recent community festival a young lady asked, “What is this EAC charge on my bill. ”

Well the answer to the question is as follows, “The Energy Adjustment Charge (EAC) portion of the bill represents the costs associated with the power you use. Cleveland Public Power buys the power for you and then charges it back  to you.”

I hope this clears up the question of the EAC. If you have a question, please send it to cppgreen at gmail dot com, and we will research your question.
