Carbondale (IL) Opts for 100% Green Option in Community Choice Aggregation Vote

January 2013 - Carbondale, Illinois, has voted for a 100 percent renewable energy plan offered by Ameren from among six alternatives presented to the city council as options for the community's electricity aggregation contract. The 100 percent renewable energy option offers green power to Carbondale residents at a 2 percent premium over the cheapest available option to the council. The aggregation of the city's and several other regional communities's electricity demand, however, will provide 100 percent green power at a savings over standard usage costs.

For customers who do not opt out of the community choice aggregation plan, Ameren will offer rates of $0.044/kilowatt-hour (kWh) for the 100 percent green power option, compared to the standard offering of more than $0.05/kWh.
