You’ll have to wait to comment on Riverside County’s plan to buy electricity

A public hearing on a proposal to have Riverside County buy electricity for unincorporated communities is expected to be delayed.

The Tuesday, Nov. 7, agenda of the county Board of Supervisor calls for that day’s hearing on Community Choice Aggregation to be rescheduled to Nov. 14. Aggregation involves the county acting as an intermediary to buy power at cheaper rates for customers in unincorporated areas.

Officials said aggregation could lower electric bills. But at a recent board meeting, Supervisor Kevin Jeffries questioned whether the county should move forward with aggregation, which could cost $1.67 million a year to implement.
