Municipal Electrical Aggregation Program
Legislation by the State of Illinois has enabled municipalities to act as a purchasing agent for the supply of electricity for its residents and small businesses. In March of 2012, a referendum was approved by the voters of West Dundee allowing the Village to bundle (or aggregate) residential and small commercial electric accounts and seek bids for the lowest cost source of electricity.
A two-year contract was awarded to First Energy Solutions to provide electrical supply to account holders in West Dundee at a rate of 4.9 cents per kWh (a 42% savings over the existing ComEd rate at that time).
Highlights of the contract include: No enrollment or cancellation fees, and a guarantee that if the ComEd rate falls below 4.9 cents per kWh, First Energy will match the lower rate.
Eligible ComEd customers in West Dundee received correspondence in July of 2012 providing an opportunity to opt-out of the program. All customers that did not opt-out were enrolled. Savings were reflected on ComEd bills as of September 2012. Individual account owners may opt-out of the Electrical Aggregation Program at any time by calling First Energy at 866-636-3749.
New West Dundee residents and eligible small businesses may enroll in the Electrical Aggregation Program by calling First Energy at 866-636-3749.
Please note that a ComEd account must first be established, as ComEd continues to administer electricity accounts with respect to billing and infrastructure maintenance. All eligible electricity consumers in West Dundee are encouraged to take advantage of this cost-savings opportunity.
