Electric Aggregation Program
The Will Electric Aggregation Group selected Constellation as its electric supplier. The group negotiated a 36-month rate (October 2018-2021) of $.07517/kwh on behalf of its residents and small businesses. There are no enrollment, switching, or early termination fees associated with this program. Customers continue to receive a bill from ComEd.
Program Update: On September 25, the ICC, announced that as a result of a settlement with PJM (the larger electrical grid of which ComEd is one part), it would be rebating a portion of the ComEd price temporarily reducing their price to compare from $0.07941/kWh down to $0.07292/kWh. As a consequence, this moves the ComEd price lower than the rate negotiated by our community for the October 2018-May 2019 time frame. A similar rebate is included in our price but is being spread over the length of the 3 year contract. When adding in the Renewable Portfolio Standard Fee those rates come within $0.00178/kWh.
We encourage residents to take the time to fully evaluate the aggregation program, the ComEd price, and any other offers they may receive from third party suppliers to make sure that you are making the right choice for your household. Should that evaluation lead you to want to leave the community aggregation program you can do so, without penalty at any time, by contacting Constellation Energy at 1-844-252-4216 or online at www.constellation.com/Il-willcounty. You will need your ComEd account number to opt-out.
