Electric aggregation approved in Dundee Township

Success - Article sent! close

Unofficial results show Dundee Township voters giving officials permission to negotiate electricity rates. With all 35 precincts reporting, 56 percent of Election Day voters said yes to electric aggregation.

All township voters -- whether they lived in unincorporated areas or not -- were asked to decide whether to give the township the right to negotiate energy prices for its residents, though only those outside of other village boundaries would benefit from the contracts.

Electric aggregation allows municipalities to buy electricity for all its residents in bulk, often negotiating major savings on the supply side of electricity bills.
