County board says not now
Electrical aggregation will have to wait
PRINCETON — The Bureau County Board is not willing to move forward at this time to place a referendum on the November ballot concerning electrical aggregation.
At Tuesday's meeting, the board heard from Mike Mudge with Rock River Energy, who asked the county board to put a referendum on the November ballot authorizing the board to solicit bids for customers who want to participate in an electric aggregation agreement. The county board would have needed to approve the referendum at Tuesday's meeting in order to meet the Aug. 20 deadline for placement on the November ballot.
The premise behind an electrical aggregation is the economies of scale, Mudge said, adding when groups of customers join together, electric companies will bid more competitively.
