What is electric aggregation?
Since 2009, Illinois state law allows municipalities to arrange for the provision of electricity to residential and small commercial retail customers by alternative electric suppliers (i.e. suppliers other than ComEd). Under this law, the municipality may seek bids for the provision of aggregate electric supply services to their residents and small businesses.
Who is eligible to participate?
Eligible residential requirements: All residents located in the Village of Skokie that are receiving electric supply service from ComEd are eligible to participate.
Eligible business requirements: All small businesses located in the Village of Skokie that are receiving electric supply service from ComEd, with a ComEd designated annual usage of 15,000 kWh or less, are eligible to participate.
Can you explain how enrollment is handled?
Customers receiving opt-out letters will be enrolled automatically to receive electric supply from mc2 unless they choose to opt out by following the instructions in the letter. Additionally, a “change in supplier” letter from the Utility will be sent confirming enrollment in the Electric Aggregation Program.
What is the electric supply price for the program?
The price will be equal to the ComEd monthly published rate including the Published Purchased Electricity Charge, Transmission Service Charge and Purchased Electricity Adjustment charge. This price can change month to month. For more information on the historical rate from the last 12 months, visit www.mc2energyservices.com/IL/HistoricalPricingPTC/P.
Is there an early termination fee?
There is no termination fee; you are only obligated to pay for services rendered under the contract until your service is terminated. You may cancel at any time by contacting mc2.
How will I be billed if I’m enrolled?
You will continue to receive a single bill from ComEd each month. “MC Squared Energy Services” will be designated as your supplier in the “Supply” section of your ComEd bill. ComEd will continue to bill you for distribution services and taxes. Payments should still be sent to ComEd at the address provided and how you pay your bill will not change. There is no impact to ComEd services such as Budget Billing, Peak Time Savings and/or financial assistance.
Will my electric service be disrupted when I switch?
No, there will be no disruption in service. You will continue to receive the same electric service through the same transmission and distribution system currently operated by ComEd. The switch to mc2 is seamless.
Who should I contact regarding problems with my electric service?
ComEd will continue to be responsible for the delivery of service to you, power outages and all emergencies, regardless of your electric supplier.
What happens at the end of the program term?
At the end of the term, if the Village of Skokie decides to end the program, all accounts served by mc2 will be returned to ComEd service or the Village of Skokie may select a different supply to administer the program.
