What is governmental aggregation?
Governmental aggregation is an easy and cost effective way for a large group of residential and small commercial consumers to save money on their electric bills. Some states’ law allow for communities – such as townships, cities, and counties – to form aggregated buying groups to purchase electric generation on behalf of their citizens. By bringing citizens together, the aggregation gains group buying power and typically can negotiate a better price with the supplier that each eligible consumer could have received individually. The government aggregator chooses the electric generation supplier for all the eligible members in its group.
