Western Licking County residents interested in learning more about their energy choices and so-called aggregation can do just that at an upcoming public meeting.

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio is hosting a workshop at 5 p.m. Oct. 7 at the Pataskala Public Library, 101 S. Vine St., to discuss the two utility-related topics.

PUCO scheduled the workshop less than a month before Etna Township residents will vote on separate opt-out aggregation issues surrounding their electricity and natural gas suppliers.

Erin MacLellan, from PUCO’s Office of Retail Competition, will be at the Oct. 7 workshop.

MacLellan, according to a press release from the PUCO, will discuss consumer rights in choosing electricity and natural gas suppliers. She also will explain how government aggregation works.

Aggregation involves consumers banding together to form large utility-purchasing groups in order to potentially negotiate better prices.

Ohio law permits the practice, allowing local governments to purchase electricity and natural gas on behalf of residents.
