REMINDER: If you have questions about energy aggregation, you can attend an informational meeting tonight at St. Francis School at 7 p.m.

President of SIMEC, Steve Thayer says SIMEC will only choose an
electrical supplier that can provide reliable and adequate power for
"A majority of them are in the fortune 500 -600 list, These are large,
large companies that have been doing this for years and are leaders of
the market," said Thayer.
If the referendum passes Nov 6, Quincy home and business owners can
still remove themselves from the process and go with another
individual supplier of their choice.
Thayer says Quincyans will know the cost per kilowatt hour before they
get locked in to the service.
"You are going to know what the rate is while you're asked to opt out
so if that rate is not somthing you'd like to be part of, then that's
when you opt out," said Thayer. " You're not asked to opt out before
you would know what the rate would be."
If the referendum passes, SIMEC would hope to have residents in
the aggregation program by January, the latest February of 2013.
