Several groups want lawmakers to follow the lead of neighboring states and adopt community choice aggregation.
Northampton is exploring ways to use community choice aggregation savings to fund clean energy projects.
Voters in a Columbus, Ohio, suburb will decide Tuesday whether to let city officials try to negotiate for cheaper and cleaner electricity on their behalf.
Ohio symbolizes the way aggregation can be a complicated mix of idealism and pragmatism, of making realistic deals in the present while hoping for more sweeping changes in the future.
Chicago’s City Council passed an ordinance Wednesday approving municipal aggregation and a contract with Integrys Energy Services to provide the city’s electricity. Where that electricity will ultimately be sourced from, however, remains unclear.
