The Village’s current electric aggregation contract with MC2 expires in October 2021. Therefore, following a competitive bid process, the Village is moving its electric aggregation program to Eligo Energy. Residents and small business owners will pay exactly the same ComEd rate, including ComEd’s monthly variable PEA component; there are never any additional fees. The program term is for one year, ending in October 2022.
The cost of serving each electric account varies greatly based on usage patterns. Some ratepayer accounts will remain with the ComEd supply service and others will be served by Eligo, but the net effect is identical for all. Just as in previous programs, ratepayers may choose to opt out at any time.
As part of the new contract, the Village will receive a civic contribution for local projects at zero added cost to ratepayers and the Village.
Types of Notices
Eligo will mail notices to residents and small businesses on Aug. 11, 2021. You will receive one of three notices:
The ratepayer will be enrolled with Eligo Energy unless they opt out.
Informative Only or Opt-In Notice
The ratepayer will remain with the individual contract they have already selected unless they choose to leave that supplier and enroll with Eligo Energy Services. Per Illinois regulation, there is never an early termination fee to switch from any supplier.
Return to ComEd Service Notice
The ratepayer is currently enrolled with supplier MC Squared but will be moved back to ComEd. You need do nothing, as you are still considered a part of the program. In August you can expect to receive a second letter from ComEd confirming your drop.
Whether remaining with ComEd or enrolling with Eligo Energy, all residents are considered members of the Tinley Park Aggregation program.
There are many benefits to the electrical aggregation program, including:
- Guaranteed at the ComEd rate, with no risk of ever paying more than the ComEd rate
- No hidden fees
- No additional monthly fees
- Maximum flexibility to join or leave the program
- Never an enrollment or switch fee
- Village is receiving a civic contribution at zero added cost
No one from Eligo Energy, ComEd or the Village of Tinley Park will ever visit your home or call you to enroll. If a solicitor claims to be either the Village supplier, Eligo Energy or ComEd, please take their information and report the incident to the ICC at www.icc.illinois.gov/complaints. Never reveal your ComEd account number or allow a solicitor to view your ComEd bill unless you are certain you wish to enroll with that supplier and have read all terms and conditions.
