  • Com Ed Electrical Supply Rate Change

    ComEd recently filed their Summer and Non-Summer Rates with the Illinois Commerce Commission for 2016 and spring of 2017. The summer price to compare will be 6.195 cents per kWh and the non- summer price to compare will be 6.315 cents per kWh. For first time since the program began in 2012, the ComEd Price To Compare will be below the aggregation programs price. The current contract with Homefield Energy has a price of 6.99 cents per kWh that will drop to 6.85 cents per kWh in September of this year. The current contract runs through September of 2017. The contract with Homefield Energy allows residents to opt-out of the program at any time with no penalty. In order to return to ComEd utility supply, residents should have their account number ready and call Homefield Energy at 1-866-694-1262 and let them know that they would like to return to ComEd supply service at the earliest possible date. It can take one to two billing cycles for the changes to take effect, depending on meter read schedules. The sole aim of the electric aggregation program has been to save residents and small businesses money on their electric supply, in the last four years the program has saved the average household in the program over $400. Now that the ComEd Price to Compare will be dropping below the programs contract price in June it is important for residents to know the facts and that they are free to leave the program without any penalty. If residents have any further questions about the Electric Aggregation Program, please call the Will County Governmental League, who manage the program on behalf of the Communities at 815-729-3535.
