People who live in municipalities where voters approved "municipal aggregation," will be saving over $200 a year on their electric bills. While the move to allow cities to bargain for lower rates for citizens was passed in 52 Illinois communities this spring including Peoria, voters in both Bloomington and Normal voted down the concept in the spring primaries. Residents in Peoria are expected to see savings of about $250 annually through the co-op that won the bid compared to current Ameren prices.
