Generally, this type of arrangement secures a much better rate than for individual households, Merriman said.Everybody in the community would be included in the arrangement. Individuals, though, could also opt out of it and select a provider of their choice.Merriman thinks the broader business deal will allow the one electric provider to offer a better rate. It should be a good thing. It should save the city money, it should save the taxpayers the residents money. This one-for-all energy provider concept has become popular in recent years, including with many of the communities in the area, Merriman explained.Councilman Joshua Long stated,2013 new Nike NFL Jerseys, It s a decision the people need to make.
