On Monday, Javier Barrios, a managing partner of Good Energy, spoke to attendees at a community meeting in Robinson, Ill. about the benefits of energy aggregation. He encouraged residents to vote "yes" on the energy aggregation referendum, which, if passed, would allow residents of Robinson to act as a single buyer. By coming together in a collective, the residents of Robinson would have more buying power and thus more sway in the market, driving down the price of energy. All residents would be enrolled automatically, but if a household does not want to participate, there will be an opt-out period during which they can return to Ameren Illinois' service. Barrios emphasized that automatically enrolling all residents in the program made the likelihood much higher that residents would be able to broker a much lower energy supply rate.
