Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio, Inc. (VEDO) sought approval from the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio for a billing format change under which Vectren would, "modify its bills to include the phrase 'a CenterPoint Energy Company' below the existing VEDO logo," which is placed at the top left corner of the bill.
Vectren Corporation is currently engaged in an ongoing merger and integration process with CenterPoint Energy. At this time, the merger is expected to close in the first quarter of 2019, VEDO said
Vectren's soon-to-be affiliate, CenterPoint Energy Services Inc., is active in various Ohio natural gas markets for residential and commercial customers, although, at this time, CenterPoint Energy Services does not have an active residential offer in the Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio service areas.
"Although no formal name change is expected following the closing of the merger, VEDO expects that minor branding changes will be adopted as appropriate to incorporate the phrase 'a CenterPoint Energy Company.' These branding changes will not involve any change in VEDO's legal name, nor result in any change in the Company's rates, services, rules, or regulations," VEDO said
The phrase "a CenterPoint Energy Company" would also appear under the Vectren logo on Vectren's website
