SUGAR CREEK TWP. Dalton and Sugar Creek Township officials have agreed to an electric aggregation program.
Residents can opt out of the program at no cost. A reminder letter with information about opting out of the aggregation program has been mailed to residents. Otherwise, residents join the program automatically.
Township Trustee President Jon Hofstetter said the goal of the electric aggregation program is to lock in a low rate for residents. The new rate will be 4.69 cents per kilowatt hour. Last summer, the rate was 5.55 cents per kilowatt hour.
The program will run for 26 months in the township beginning in August. The program will run in the village for 29 months beginning in May so that the end of the contract will be at the same time for both entities.
Village and township officials met Wednesday and approved contracts with Dynegy with Trebel LLC as the consultant. The village and township are joining the city of Ashland to be able to take advantage of a better rate by being part of a package together.
