Residents of Alton, Bethalto and Godfrey gave their local leaders permission to negotiate for cheaper power through electric aggregation by voting in favor of the referendum in March. Now, it's time for the last two public hearings before Good Energy begins looking for the best deal to take back to the municipalities. Good Energy of New York is one of the largest power brokers in the country, and believes it can save people money.
Dale Kelley specializes in finding electricity for municipalities and other large-scale consumers at a reduced price. He says while aggregation is a new concept and there may be some bumps along the way, he believes consumers will find the aggregation process to their liking.
Residents in Bethalto and Godfrey had their public hearings last week. Alton residents can participate at city hall tonight at 7:00 and Wednesday at 7:30pm.
