CINCINNATI — “About 18,000 residents of six Hamilton County communities that have adopted electric aggregation are saving an average of $300 annually over Duke’s current rates, says Eagle Energy LLC., a Cheviot energy consulting firm which solicited competitive bids on their behalf. Those communities are Amberley Village, Cheviot, Glendale, Green Township, Indian Hill and Lockland.
Rachael Belz, coal program director for Ohio Citizen Action, a state-wide consumer group which is urging approval of the aggregation proposals, and Greenpeace issued a survey Monday of other area communities’ experience with aggregation.
‘I was impressed with the huge amount of money local communities have saved through electric aggregation. West Chester Township saved nearly $5 million in just 10 months with their new aggregation program,’ Belz said. ‘We have a real chance to put money back in people’s pockets by passing Issue 44.'”
