Resident Letter Regarding the Village of Hinsdale Not Renewing the Electric Aggregation Program

The Village of Hinsdale established a municipal electric aggregation program in 2012 following the successful passage of a voter referendum. The purpose of the program was to help residents purchase electricity at rates below those offered by ComEd. The Village of Hinsdale's program was one of the most successful programs in northern Illinois, with the average participating household having saved over $1,000 on electric supply charges versus the ComEd default rate. On a community-wide basis, the program saved $5.2 million over the past three years. Savings will continue through the July 2015 meter reading, at which time the program will expire.

The Village has investigated the possibility of entering into a new electric aggregation program to replace the program set to expire in July 2015, but has not found a program that would provide any meaningful savings to residents. Thus, the Village will not be renewing the program. Residents that participated in the program have these two options:

  1. Do nothing and you will automatically be moved back to ComEd supply service. Residents enrolled in the Village's program will receive a ComEd "Confirmation of Drop" notice stating that their supply service will be switched back to ComEd. The notice will also state that residents will have two billing periods in which they may switch to another supplier, otherwise they will be required to remain on ComEd electric supply service for a total of 12 months.
  2. Visit www.pluginIllinois.org to compare prices and terms for other suppliers in ComEd territory. Please carefully review details, rates, and terms before enrolling with another supplier.

With the expiration of the Village's program, residents should beware of door-to-door solicitors, direct callers or direct mail pieces regarding electric supply and are advised to carefully review contract terms for floating rates or early termination fees. It is recommended that residents never release their account number to a solicitor under any circumstance, unless they have decided to move to that supplier.

In the future, the Village will continue to monitor the electric power market to determine if lower rates can be achieved by reinstating the Village's electric aggregation program. If a lower rate can be negotiated in the future, Village officials will inform residents of the updated rate before its implementation.

Residents with questions about the suspension of the electric aggregation program are invited to contact Assistant Village Manager Darrell Langlois at (630) 789-7014.
