New Unit 2 Electric Contract

At its special meeting Monday night, the Bond Unit 2 school board approved a contract that should result in significant electric cost savings.

The board entered into a 36-month contract with Constellation, through electricity aggregator Affordable Gas and Electric (A-G-E). It will not go into effect until January of next year when the current electric contract expires.

Two representatives from A-G-E presented the board figures regarding current rates and projected savings. Over the three years, it is estimated Unit 2 could save about $140,000 in electricity costs.

Unit 2 Superintendent Wes Olson said A-G-E was the only consulting company submitting prices and the deadline was Monday.
