Electric Aggregation Program
> Electric Aggregation Program
Since the Village’s Electric Aggregation Program began in June 2012, over 23,000 Palatine residents and small businesses have enrolled and collectively saved more than $4,700,000 as compared to what they would have paid ComEd. These savings will exceed $5 million at the end of the first full year of the program.
The Village of Palatine recently decided to renew its aggregation program with Integrys Energy Services, Inc. The Village has renewed the program for an additional eleven (11) months. Palatine residences and small businesses are eligible to participate in this program.
The Village has negotiated a price of 5.579¢/kWh which more than 7% lower than the June through September 2013 ComEd effective rate of 6.011¢/ kWh*.
Residences and small businesses currently enrolled with Integrys will automatically remain in the program unless they opt out by May 27, 2013.
Residences and small businesses currently with Comed’s standard rate class will automatically enroll in the program unless they opt out by May 27, 2013.
Residences and small businesses with expiring contract with another vendor and wish to sign up in the Village's Program, should contact Integrys at 877-585-3431.
To opt-out; contact Integrys toll-free at 877-585-3431 or online at www.integrysenergy.com/il-palatine.
In addition to savings on electricity costs, program enrollees will automatically receive Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) provided as part of the Village’s new program, which will result in the funding of wind or hydroelectric renewable energy resources (“Green Energy”). However, enrollees may elect to decline the REC product. It is estimated that the renewable energy has an annual cost of $7.00 per household. To elect to decline the “Green Energy” option, please contact Integrys toll-free at 877-585-3431.
ComEd will continue sending monthly bills, responding to outages, and delivering your electricity.
No one from the Palatine’s program will ever come to your door or call you to ask you to switch to a new supplier. Anyone who comes to your door or calls you asking you to switch is not with Palatine’s program.
If you have any questions, please contact Integrys toll-free at 877-585-3431. Representatives are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
* Calculated as ComEd’s “Price to Compare” plus the Purchased Electricity Adjustment (PEA) Factor effective for June 2013; + 0.500 = 6.011¢/kWh
