The following reports were part of a memo distributed among Village of Northbrook staff.
Comparing ComEd’s current rate to the North Shore Electricity Aggregation Consortium’s Supply Rate, the Consortium announced this week that customers in the eight-community Consortium’s program have saved $2,838,785 during the months of June/July, with Northbrook customers alone saving more than $600,000.
Using a historical comparison of electricity use among Consortium’s customers, it is anticipated that from June 2012 to May 2013 Consortium customers will save more than $25 million on the supply charge on their electric bill. The North Shore Electricity Aggregation Consortium includes: Northbrook, Deerfield, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Park Ridge and Skokie. Northbrook is anticipated to save over $4.4 million with each resident, on average, saving approximately $380 annually.
Residents are reminded to be mindful of other suppliers soliciting for customers. All consortium communities have received phone calls from residents indicating that other energy suppliers have solicited their businesses and may be representing themselves as the Consortium’s provider.
The Consortium will only communicate with our residents and businesses through official letterhead or on our official websites and will not make phone calls soliciting business. If you are concerned about phone calls that you are receiving, contact the Illinois Commerce Commission at 1‐800‐524‐0795. The Illinois Commerce Commission is the regulating body of all electric suppliers in Illinois.
