We help community leaders put an issue on the ballot so that your residents can vote on whether they'd like their community to adopt a governmental opt-out natural gas or electric aggregation program. We even offer sample legislation language to get the ball rolling. We also work with community leaders to answer residents' questions.

We also attend two public meetings where community members can ask questions about NOPEC’s governmental opt-out energy aggregation programs. When your town is ready, it can join our natural gas or electric aggregation, and citizens can start receiving all of the benefits of NOPEC membership.

Meet neighboring community leaders who have already aggregated with NOPEC

The best part: this whole process is completely free for all citizens.

It doesn’t cost your citizens a dime. We work hard at NOPEC to make the process simple to understand and easy to do so everyone can just sit back, relax and save!

What is a governmental opt-out aggregation program?

It’s a way for your community to join others and use that collective strength to purchase energy as a group. It allows NOPEC to negotiate directly with utility providers on your citizens' behalf to secure lower cost energy and other benefits that your community couldn’t get on its own.

When your community votes on aggregation, they are voting on whether or not they want to allow their community to have the option of a governmental opt-out aggregation program. Residents are not personally voting to join it yet, nor are they choosing NOPEC or another aggregator for their community. If aggregation passes, only then will you choose your aggregator.
