The Bloomington City Council spent almost an hour discussing why citizens shouldn’t be allowed to choose the lowest cost electricity under Municipal Aggregation. The final vote was 7-2 with Aldermen Sage and Mathy against limiting your rights. The rest of the Council voted with one finger pointed directly at you.
Even with Wind Turbines polluting the countryside around McLean County, Illinois is only producing 5.9% of its energy from renewables. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-tipping-point-for-renewable-energy-is-nearly-here-2017-02-15
The original plan before the Council was to give you an option to: (1)opt out (2)opt for 100% green energy (3)opt for the lowest price.
Watch Scott Black at 1:22:00 say he is a big fan of freedom and choice except when the planet must be saved by forcing you to pay more.
The conversation turns to renewable energy credits which means your dollars will be buying pieces of paper so somebody can build more solar farms or wind turbines.
When you elect non-partisan Democrats to the Council it will cost you. Ideology always takes precedence over common sense. 7 members of this Council will be forcing you to pay for their climate change propaganda.
Check other prices. You can sign up with a different company and opt out of this nonsense. Your service will not be affected. Send me recommendations if you have been checking around.
Just hit play to watch the entire discussion – but I must warn you, it’s painful. Or, fast forward to Black’s assault on your rights comment.
Note: I might delete all comments. Thinking people will never be swayed by any “settled science” nonsense, so don’t even try here.
