City of Dayton residents will vote Tuesday on whether to allow electric aggregation. If passed, the ballot issue would allow the city to choose who supplies electricity to Dayton residents—a move the city says will save people money.
Last week, Southwestern Ohio Educational Purchasing Council and DPL Energy negotiated a deal they say improves and extends an existing contract and locks in a lower energy rate through June of 2014.
The agreement affects some 80 educational institutions, including 73 local school districts. The deal is also expected to save tax payers some money.
A report in the Dayton Daily News says the agreement could save local school districts around $11.5 million in energy costs over four years.
