Lykins Moves Into Electricity Business
MILFORD, Ohio -- The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio certified Lykins Energy Solutions as a competitive retail electric service provider, making the company a certified supplier of electricity for all customer classes in the state for aggregation, power marketer and power broker of services.

"This is another new service Lykins Energy Solutions can provide customers. This will give our current and future residential and commercial customers another option for their electric supply and another means by which we can help minimize energy costs," said Lykins Energy Solutions President and CEO Jeff Lykins.
Customer enrollment for electricity supplied directly by Lykins Energy Solutions will begin in September.
