Eight months after the energy aggregation referendum failed to pass in Normal, Ill., the issue is on the ballot once again. After the first vote on municipal aggregation, complaints arose that voters were not as informed as they needed to be in order to pass such a resolution. This time, however, Good Energy is helping to ensure that residents know what aggregation means for them. As for the other municipalities and counties which have passed municipal aggregation, Good Energy's managing partner, Charles de Casteja, says that residents are seeing savings of 25 to 30% on their energy supply rates. The main opposition comes from members of the Republican party, like John Parrott Jr., McLean County Republican Party Chairman, who oppose municipal aggregation on the grounds that it invites government into another sector of everyday life.
