C4CH joins Village in urging voters: “Vote Yes”
on the November 6 voter referendum to support the issue of municipal electric aggregation.
Though not a perfect system, it can and likely will benefit our residents because it opens the door to en masse competition for better rates. If approved, it will authorize the Village to negotiate for electrical rates for residential and small commercial customers lower than what ComEd currently sells.
The referendum question will appear on the Tuesday, November 6 ballot as follows: “Shall the Village of Clarendon Hills have the authority to arrange for the supply of electricity for its residential and small commercial retail customer who have not opted out of the program?”
Many DuPage County communities have recently embraced the opportunity for “electric aggregation” by its residents voting in favor of the measure by referendum at the most recent prior election: Addison, Aurora, Bolingbrook, Darien, Downers Grove, Elmhurst, Hanover Park, Hinsdale, Itasca, Lisle, Lombard, Warrenville, Westmont, Woodridge.
C4CH commends the Village Board and its volunteer review committee for researching this issue over the summer. It will almost certainly result in a direct savings to our residents.
