Electric Aggregation Program

On October 12, 2010 Huron City Council passed Resolution 2010-81 which authorized an agreement between the city and First Energy Solutions for a nine (9) year electric aggregation program within the City of Huron.  Previously, the city established the authority to negotiate and procure an electric generation supplier with the passage of a ballot issue in May of 2001. 

Under the terms of the agreement, First Energy Solutions would provide residential and commercial customers a 4% -6% savings on the generation supply associated with the standard residential/commercial rate.  In addition, the city would receive a onetime grant in the amount of $117,000 which city administration recommends be allocated to capital improvement upgrades to public lighting within the city. 

Letters to residential and commerical customers were distributed by First Energy Solutions the week of January 3, 2011  with information and Opt-Out forms.  Contact First Energy Solutions, toll free at 1-866-636-3749 with any questions.
