Tarentum to enter 10-month electric supply agreement
Tarentum is almost ready to get into a new agreement for its electricity supply.
Council is expected to approve a 10-month agreement with PSEG in August, borough Manager Michael Nestico said.
That will come after two temporary, one-month agreements that kept electricity flowing into the borough.
The borough, which operates its own distribution system, had long bought electricity from Talen Energy, formerly PPL. That agreement ended in May.
For June, the borough had an agreement with West Penn Power, but the company was not interested in a long-term supply contract, according to Nestico.
For July, it got electricity from PSEG.
A second short-term agreement was needed while the details of the longer one were worked out, according to Nestico.
Council will ratify that agreement for July when it meets on Thursday.
