The following is a press release sent out by the Village of Glencoe. It relates to the new electrical aggregation program that will save residents up to 41 percent off ComEd's rates.
Here is the press release in full:
Official correspondence from the North Shore Electricity Aggregation Consortium (“Consortium”) communities regarding electricity aggregation will be mailed during the week of April 23 to all eligible residential customers via regular postal service. This correspondence will come under the letterhead of each resident’s community. Residents will not receive a telephone call from their community, or from the Consortium’s provider, mc2.
This correspondence will explain the program and provide information for customers. Once the correspondence is received, customers will have 21 days to determine if they want to “opt‐out” of the municipal program. Under this “opt‐out” program, all residential and small commercial retail customers (those whose annual usage is 15,000 kWh or less) will be switched automatically to mc2, unless the customer affirmatively opts‐out of the program and wishes to remain with ComEd. Residents and small businesses that have already switched to an alternative provider will be able to “opt‐in” to the municipal aggregation program; those residents and businesses should contact mc2 directly at (888) 808‐7731 or email at NorthShore@MC2energyservices.com for more information about registration.
This week, the Consortium announced a new rate for electricity that will yield at least 41% savings off the current Commonwealth Edison residential electricity rate, and save residential customers hundreds of dollars annually. This is one of the largest aggregation groups under a single form agreement in Illinois.
