At least one company engaging in door-to-door solicitation as an electrical supplier in the City of Effingham is NOT affiliated with the electrical aggregation efforts in the news recently.

Effingham City Administrator Jim Arndt Thursday said there is at least one company engaging in door-to-door solicitation as an electrical supplier in Effingham and other towns within Effingham County.  Arndt said the company or companies are not affiliated with any of the Municipalities Electrical Aggregation Programs that have been publicized over the last few weeks.

Arndt reminded that the Effingham City Council recently hired a company called Good Energy to start community outreach and perform the electrical bidding for Effingham city residents.  There will be a referendum on November 6 requesting permission to bid the City's electricity for its residents under the approved plan.  The bid is expected to occur in December and customers would be switched over in January.

Arndt said residents do not have to sign up for the City's Electrical Aggregation Program.  Residents will be offered an opportunity to "opt out" of the program if they wish.  Any company asking you to "sign up" or make any advance payments is not affiliated with the City-sponsored program.

Additional information about the City-sponsored electrical aggregation program will be available within the next few weeks.
