Public Hearings on Electric Aggregation Set In Both Salem And Centralia Monday NightBoth the Salem and Centralia City Councils tonight are being asked to move forward on electric aggregation.
Good Energy, which will be the broker for both cities, is proposing to go out for bid for electric services for residences and small businesses in Salem and Centralia that do not opt out of the service on December 11th. The electric service of the two cities will be 'bundled' and sold along with others represented by Good Energy that approved referendums in November in favor of electric aggregation. The company says residents should save 15 to 20 percent on their overall Ameren Electric Bill.
Both cities tonight are being asked to approve a resolution approving the aggregation program plan of operation and governance. The public hearing set by the Salem City Council will begin at five at Salem City Hall. The public hearing will be followed by a special council meeting at 5:15 Monday night to review employee compensation in closed session. The Centralia City Council will hold a public hearing on the proposal at 6:30 before possibly taking action on the resolution at the regular city council meeting that will follow at seven Monday night.
