This weekend, we learned the DeWitt County Board has approved to take to referendum a proposal for electric aggregation for unincorporated areas of the County.
According to Board Chair David Newberg, this proposal failed a few years ago, however, this time around they have approved Good Energy to lead the charge to educate the community on what electric aggregation is all about.
Newberg explains this only is voted on by those in unincorporated areas of DeWitt County. He adds it also does not effect those who are with CornBelt Energy.
Newberg also points out, with the uncertainty of the Exelon Power Plant in Clinton and the effect it would have on electric rates in Illinois, this would be a way for residents to not feel that as much.
He says it would keep electric rates frozen at the agreed to price.
