Region could form natural-gas buying group
The same consultant that helped establish a regional power-purchasing program for electricity is gauging interest in a similar program for natural gas. Peoria Public Radio’s Alex Rusciano reports:
“First of all it would be aggregated-purchasing, leverage. Contract terms, we were able to put a lot of really amazing contract terms unto the municipal electricity contracts. Really the education around products, perhaps, in natural gas, we would have more that just fixed-price products. We would have savings,” de Casteja says.
