Quincy selects energy supplier


Quincy has selected a new electricity supplier, and residents could see savings within the next month.  Mayor John Spring announced Thursday morning that First Energy will supply the city's electricity for the next three years as a part of the aggregation program.  

Spring says the new rate of 4.194 cents per kilowatt hour is 23 percent less than what residents are currently paying, and if Ameren rates are lower, customers will be switched to the lower rate. 

The average household could save between $130 and $150. 

"I think this is really important for our community.  I'm thrilled we did so well, and I'm as you can see in the release grateful to all the council members," Mayor Spring said.

Delivery rates will stay the same, and the bills will still come from Ameren.  Letters will now be mailed to residents, giving them on option to drop out of the program.  If you wish to be included, you don't have to do anything.
