    Looks like my community is taking part in an electric aggregation program. For those of you who don't know, that's a system that municipalities and counties to purchase electricity on behalf of residential and small-business utility customers living within their borders. While municipalities choosing community aggregation would be responsible for negotiating the price of power from a supplier other than the traditional utility, your utility would still be responsible for delivering that power to your home, and billing you for it. In theory, communities could use the collective bargaining power of residents to negotiate for lower power prices from suppliers.

    Has anyone here ever taken part in such a program? Has it led to lower electric bills?
