Want Cheaper Electricity? Northfield Residents Could Opt-In Before Referendum

Northfield residents could get cheaper electricity by participating in a program offered by Lake Shore Power Alliance.

While Northfield officials are seeking cheaper electricity via an electricity aggregation referendum, residents are already able to obtain cheaper rates through the Lake Shore Affinity Program, according to the village website. 

“Through the Lakeshore Affinity Program, your electricity supply rates would be fixed at 4.035 cents/kWh through May 2013.  If the referendum passes, you should be able to transition to the Lakeshore Power Alliance's Municipal Aggregation Program in January 2013,” according to the village’s website. 

In August, the Northfield Village Board approved putting a question regarding electrical aggregation on the Nov. 6 ballot. The question will ask voters if they authorize the Village of Northfield to arrange for the supply of electricity for its residents and small business customers.  

If the referendum passes, Northfield has entered talks to join the Lake Shore Power Alliance, which is a municipal aggregation partnership between the villages of Wilmette and Kenilworth

The affinity program started on September 10 and the village is providing the information as a resource to residents. 

“The Village of Northfield is not soliciting business for MC Squared nor use of its services,” according to the village announcement.
