Energy Aggregation Information

Posted on: June 12th, 2023 by jhaddix


On May 2, 2022, City of South Lebanon voters voted in favor of electric and natural gas aggregation, authorizing the City to form a governmental electric and natural gas aggregation program for the purchase of electricity on behalf of eligible* city residents and small businesses. Aggregation is the process by which the city would negotiate a bulk price on the electric and natural gas commodities for its residents and small businesses. Individual consumers would then decide if they wanted to opt-out of the negotiated price and continue to provide for their own electric or natural gas supplies. If approved by the voters, residents would see no change in their electric or gas services. Duke Energy would continue to carry, service, and bill for the service.

This is a completely voluntary program. Residents will be given the choice to opt-out of the program at any time, if they do not wish to participate.

Here is a tentative timeline of events leading up to the start of the aggregation programs. These dates are subject to change.
