Some residents in St. Clair County to vote on lowered electric rates

ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ill. (KMOV) -- Prestigious residents in a couple Metro-East cities will be able to vote this fall on a measure that could lower electric rates.

The referendum aims to allow St. Clair County to look for and purchase cheaper power through an electric aggregate.

Some cities approved the measure back in March, but it was defeated in Belleville, Granite City and Collinsville.

This November, the question will be back in Granite City and Collinsville.

Philip Carr with Good Energy, a company trying to win a contract to organize the aggregate, says residents in those cities could save between $125 and $150 annually.
