L-P Going To Try Electric Aggregation

Posted by wlpo on April 24, 2013

One advantage to running a school district versus a city or county is you don’t have to ask the voters if they want electric aggregation.  A school board can choose to try it on their own.

The L-P School Board is hiring Integrys Energy Services to negotiate lower electric rates for the part of the high school that’s in La Salle.  Currently the electric bill for the La Salle part of the high school goes to Ameren.  Superintendent Steve Wrobleski says doing electric aggregation could save the district 24 thousand dollars a year in electric bills.  The L-P Board is going with a two-year contract.

Integrys also does electric aggregation for the city of Ottawa.  Ottawa was pleased enough by the savings that they’ve signed a contract extension with the aggregation company.

The part of L-P High School that falls in Peru writes their electric bill to the city of Peru.  Wrobleski says they’re happy with the rates they pay to Peru.
