The Ohio Program for Affordable Energy (opae)

OPAE is a 501(c)(3) non-profit membership organization created to advocate for affordable energy policies for moderate and low-income Ohioans. OPAE conducts education and training programs for non-profit agencies. OPAE also manages energy efficiency assistance programs for low-income households, as well as provides consulting and research services to public and private organizations on a variety of energy-related topics.

PICCA is able to come to your home and evaluate the energy consumption of your appliances. If they are greater than the guidelines provided by AEP or DP&L, we are able to replace them with a more energy efficient model. The appliances we are able to replace include: refrigerators/freezers, air conditioning units and light bulbs.
