The Edgerton Village Council on Monday night, moved toward participating in a village-wide energy efficiency program.
According to the Bryan Times, Council President Trevor Weaver met with a representative from Efficiency Smart (ES), the nonprofit program presented to council at its last meeting. That’s a service of American Municipal Power to provide information and technical services designed to help in the reduction of energy consumption. The average cost per household for the subscription service will be between $1.40 and $2.50 per month.
According to Weaver, ES guarantees to meet a level of energy savings and if that level isn’t met, residents receive a rebate of their fees.
Currently, Edgerton must purchase energy on the open market, and ES says efficiency gained by their program will be able to reduce that need.
