Electric Aggregation Ballot Question

On the April 4, 2023 Carterville election ballot, there is a question on Carterville having the authority to arrange for the supply of electricity.  This yes or no question will either allow or deny Carterville the opportunity to be included in a bulk energy purchasing group.

This only applies to Ameren customers in the Carterville City Limits.  Ameren is an electric distribution company that’s required to provide a supply option.  Ameren’s focus is distributing energy but they are required to provide a supply option to customers that have not chosen another energy supplier.  Aggregation group suppliers buy in bulk and lock in longer term rates by contract.

There is an opt-out option built into the program that allows any Carterville Ameren customer to leave the bulk buying group at any time with no penalty and no cost.

To summarize, a yes vote allows a supplier to add Carterville Ameren customers into their buying group.  A no vote will not allow a supplier to add Carterville Ameren customers to their buying group.

The advertisement for the upcoming public hearing is linked below.  Please feel free to contact City Hall with any questions.
