The Village is preparing to go back onto the open market to seek bids from electricity providers for the Community Choice Aggregation Program that bundles residential and small business electric accounts to reduce costs.
Meetings to gather public input on how the program will be administered are scheduled for 7 p.m., March 6 and 13 at Village Hall, 123 Madison St.
The Community Choice Aggregation Program was approved by voters in April 2011 and the subsequent bid process garnered a provider that not only offered a lower cost, but also guaranteed power from cleaner sources. Officials say the upcoming bid may be affected by anticipated rising costs associated with changes in the energy market and delivery of electricity.
