Pantagraph endorses energy aggregation referendum

Energy aggregation got a resounding vote of confidence from the Pantagraph editorial board Thursday which published an editorial touting the referendum's price-savings and dismissing its opposition, who believe that the referendum would mean an expansion of government. Government, however, is simply allowing voters to say whether or not they would like the chance to bargain for cheaper energy. If the referendum passes, government won't be negotiating the new contracts, an energy consulting company called Good Energy will be. That company will, in turn, be paid by the new energy supply company. Government's role was simply to allow the referendum on the ballot. Pantagraph goes on to say that during this recession, when everyone is trying to pinch their pennies and find ways to cut costs, energy aggregation is just a smart decision. The average household will save between $150 and $200 annually on their electric bill, and with the help of Good Energy, communities can negotiate a price-match clause into their energy supplier contract.

Good Energy representative speaks to county officials about benefits of energy aggregation and what will happen if the referendum passes Tuesday

At a luncheon last Friday in Effingham County, Ill., a consultant from Good Energy talked about getting people out to vote for the energy aggregation referendum Tuesday and about how the referendum, if passed, would affect voters. If energy aggregation passes, residences will receive two letters giving them two separate opportunities to opt-out of the aggregation program. If they choose to stay in the program, residents don't have to do anything, and they can look forward to seeing savings of up to 20% on their monthly energy supply rates by February 2013.

Vote YES! on energy aggregation referendum, Belleville News-Democrat says

The Belleville News-Democrat has changed their tune on energy aggregation. The key difference? The involvement of Good Energy, an independent energy consulting company. When the newspaper spoke out against energy aggregation previously, they did so because the consulting company helping to negotiate and ensure a lower supply rate was also the company supplying the energy. The paper cited "competing interests," and appropriately so. But things have changed between then and now. On Friday, the News-Democrat put its faith in Good Energy, which, the editorial says, has made every effort to inform voters about the ins and outs of energy aggregation. 

Olney and unincorporated Richland County will vote on energy aggregation Tuesday

On Nov. 6, voters in Olney and the surrounding unincorporated areas in Richland County will vote on an energy aggregation referendum, which, if passed, will help lower the energy supply rate for area residents. Around 50 other Illinois counties will be voting on a similar referendum that day. Earlier this year, more than 55 counties around the state okayed energy aggregation and accepted contracts for a lower energy supply rate from a company other than Ameren Illinois or Commonwealth Edison. If the referendum passes in Olney Tuesday, Good Energy will help negotiate that new energy supply contract for the city and the surrounding areas. 

With just a day left before the election, Good Energy is offering an informational session about Tuesday's energy aggregation referendum

Before going to the polls to vote, make sure you know what else is on your ballot, other than the race for the Presidency. On Monday, there will be an informational meeting in the City Council Chambers at Belleville City Hall about the energy aggregation referendum on Tuesday's ballot. If you have any last minute questions, make sure to make the meeting, or read your voter guide. A "yes" vote on the energy referendum will allow Belleville residents to negotiate for cheaper energy rate.

With less than a week left until election day, local Illinois papers try to answer remaining questions about energy aggregation and its possible impact on voters

Are you still kind of fuzzy on what energy aggregation is? Do you still wonder what exactly it is that Good Energy does, or how a "yes" vote on the energy aggregation referendum will affect you? If so, then Oblong Gem's recent article on electrical aggregation is meant for you. On Thursday, with just five days left in the 2012 campaign, Oblong Gem, local paper, tried to answer some questions about energy aggregation that voters may still have. The aggregation referendum will be on the Nov. 6 ballot in counties around the state of Illinois.

In the last days before the election, Quincy Herald-Whig does its best to inform voters on the ins and outs of Tuesday's energy aggregation referendum

Come Tuesday, seven communities in Western-Central Illinois, including Quincy and Pittsfield, will vote on the energy aggregation referendum which would allow residents to negotiate as a group their own price for energy. Pittsfield chose Good Energy as their energy consultant to help ensure that the public is fully informed about energy aggregation and to negotiate a lower energy price with independent energy suppliers. To help still-undecided voters make up their minds, the Herald-Whig included in its article a quick guide on the basics of municipal aggregation. 

To the editorial staff at the Herald and Review, a "yes" vote on the energy aggregation referendum is a clear and obvious choice

The Herald & Review released an editorial today advocating a "yes" vote on the energy aggregation referendum come Nov. 6. If you vote for energy aggregation and it passes, and you decide later that you don't want to participate, you're not obligated to. You can simply "opt-out." As the editorial explains, having bulk purchasing power is the essence of energy aggregation.

Quoting the article: "We agree with Knauer’s assessment and recommend a "yes" vote on aggregation, no matter where you live and vote."

If Illinois residents come together as a single entity, they can demand energy companies offer lower rates on the supply cost of energy.
