Palatine Electric Aggregation Program Savings to Date: $6.6 million
Following the passage of a voter referendum in March 2012, the Village of Palatine established an electric aggregation savings program to procure lower-cost electric supply for residents and small businesses via an opt-out program. The program has succeeded: average participating households have saved $299 to date, for a cumulative Village-wide savings of $6.6 million.
The Village renewed the program in May 2014 via a competitive bid process. Constellation, an Exelon Company, offered the lowest pricing at a fixed rate of 6.621¢ per kWh for three years ending May 2017. Additionally, 100% of electric supply consumed by program participants supports renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and hydro. To date, the renewable program has reduced CO2 output by 228,000 tons.
