Huntley Board Votes to Join Electric Aggregation Consortium
Trustees approve an intergovernmental agreement to join the Northern Illinois Governmental Electric Aggregation Consortium.
Huntley's village board unanimously agreed to join the Northern Illinois Governmental Electric Aggregation Consortium which would help faciliate negotiations with electric providers for lower rates and be the contracting party.
NIGEAC would also prepare education and public relations documents about the Joint Power Supply Bid, according to officials. The Consortium would include Algonquin, Johnsburg, Lake In The Hills, Lakewood, Genoa, Marengo, McHenry and Woodstock, McCullom Lake, Ringwood and Spring Grove.
The agreement is part of preparations the village is making leading up to the March 20 election where voters will be asked whether Huntley should adopt an opt-out electrical aggregation program.
Thursday's vote came during a two and a half minute village board meeting that left trustees commenting that it may be one of the shortest meetings ever.
