An energy consulting firm representing more than 50 communities in Central and Southern Illinois is telling customers who opted into their municipalities' plan for electric aggregation to stay put. The response from GoodEnergy comes after a recent string of cold calls from several other suppliers. According to the consultant group, residents in Alton, Godfrey, Bethalto and Glen Carbon have all received calls in the last few weeks from telemarketers.

GoodEnergy continues to support Homefield Energy, who they say could save customers participating in the aggregation program up to twenty-five percent on their bills. They also remind customers that Homefield Energy was the only company selected by the local municipalities to provide electricity under this program. GoodEnergy also says that Homefield Energy will not contact any residents soliciting their business and that Ameren will still maintain all of the lines and issue bills.
