TROY — Voters in the city of Troy will have the opportunity to vote on a city-wide gas aggregation program during the May 2 primary election.
If approved, the city will negotiate a three-year natural gas supply rate as a part of the Miami Valley Communications Council gas aggregation program.
Troy residents are currently eligible to participate in a community electric aggregation program through Energy Harbor. Similar to electric aggregation, the gas aggregation program is designed to provide Troy residents with greater “buying power,”said a city of Troy press release. This is achieved via the negotiation of a group gas rate that is lower than individual rates. Additionally, a three-year rate guarantee will eliminate rate fluctuations for households, thereby providing greater predictability and stability.
Residents will be automatically enrolled in the gas aggregation program unless they choose to opt-out. Letters will be sent explaining the opt out process if the issue is approved by the voters. Residents may opt out of the program at any time.
