Electric Aggregation Contract Extended: The Village Board approved a three month extension to the current electric aggregation contract with Constellation at 6.8 cents per kilowatt hour. This extension locks in savings below the ComEd rate which is 7.562 cents per kilowatt hour, but can float 0.5 cents in either direction. Residents will continue to receive the bill from ComEd and ComEd continues to provide distribution services.
Since the electric program started in 2013, residents and small businesses have saved over $600,000 compared to the ComEd supply rate.
If you have any questions call Zach Creer, Assistant to the Village Manager at (630) 286-5402 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
