    Understanding generation prices

    Generation is the first stage of getting electricity to your home. Whether from older sources like coal or renewable methods like solar and wind, generated electricity is then transmitted via lines and distributed to your home. AES Ohio, along with other utilities in the state, participate in a market-based auction for generated electricity. An auction is a competitive process for procuring electric generation. The auction is conducted by an independent third party with oversight by the Public Utility Commission of Ohio (PUCO).
