Can Salem look at the viability of partnering with say with Peabody to reduce our electric bills. National Grid along with the department of public utilities has allowed them to fee the cash away from us. The charge us to be a customer then charge massive transmission fees and “renewable” energy charge which I should be able to choose to pay or not, but then we still need to pay the electric supply that’s already $100 for low to medium usage. We let National Grid control the market here. One city over (Peabody) pays 1/4 for their electric bill, because they own their infrastructure. Why can’t we partner up with Peabody to cogenerate by building a gas turbine generator out say behind DPW where it is already industrial with a grant etc. We pay a lot in taxes and we deserve to live with lower energy bills.

Thank you
