Blue Hill Talks Dropping Bangor Hydro 

Changing providers to save some change.Blue Hill selectmen were recently given the option to purchase electricity from Glacial Energy.It means parting from Bangor Hydro Electric Company, their current provider.Glacial says it would provide electricity for the town’s commercial buildings at a lower cost per kilowatt hour, and would require no formal contract from the town.John Bannister, chairmen of the board says he recently made this switch for his store in town. He says he has saved money and anticipates the town will as well. “I guess there’s no guarantee but it sure looks that way. It looks like it could be anywhere between 4% and 10% for very little effort on our part to do much of anything, its a no brain-er not much risk, why not try it.”Town officials say it may be some time before a final switch is made.
