Second Ward residents to hear about electrical aggregation proposal

Posted: Updated:

 

Residents of Quincy's Second Ward are being invited to an informational meeting Wednesday night to hear about a proposal to create a citywide buyer's group to seek lower electrical supply costs.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at St. Francis School. Representatives from SIMEC will make a presentation and answer questions.

SIMEC, an energy company from Carbondale, was hired by the city to help persuade voters to support an electrical aggregation referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot.

Under municipal aggregation, residents could see the electric supply portion of their Ameren Illinois bill dip as much as 35 percent. Residents and business owners who do not want to participate have the right to opt out at the beginning of the contract.

The two Second Ward aldermen, Dave Bauer and Steve Duesterhaus, are hosting the informational meeting.
