Glenview Residents to Vote on Electrical Referendum
A question regarding the electrical referendum will appear on the Nov. 6 ballot for Glenview voters.
Glenview could be on its way to lower electrical rates.
The Village Board of Trustees voted Tuesday to put an electrical aggregation referendum on the Nov. 6 ballot, according to a press release.
The referendum, if approved, would allow the village to "to seek competitive pricing from electricity suppliers by combining the electricity supply needs of residents and small retailers as a pool."
“If we control the bids through an aggregation process we think we can get savings,” Deputy Village Manager Don Owen told Patch earlier this month. “However, as time goes on, that savings is likely to reduce.”
Communities that have aggregated their electricity have experienced 18 to 44 percent savings, according to Director of Public Works Jerry Burke.
