Following the passage of a March 2012 voter referendum, the Village of Lisle has contracted to procure cost-effective electric supply for residents and small businesses. Over this time, participating ratepayers have saved money in power costs and have been supplied with small amounts of green energy. An electric aggregation program is intended to aggregate the purchasing power of residents and small businesses to secure lower electricity supply costs.
New Provider – MC Squared Energy Services (MC2)
In June of 2023, the Village Board voted to authorize the execution of an agreement with MC2 for a municipal electric aggregation program. MC2 is an independent seller of power and energy services certified by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) as an Alternative Retail Electricity Supplier. MC2 was the selected electric supplier after a competitive bidding process. The agreement with MC2 is for an 11-month term from November 2023 thru October 2024.
Though the electric supply market has tightened and no longer can provide cost savings to participants, under this program, residents and small businesses are guaranteed to never pay more than the current ComEd rate at any given time. ComEd sets its residential rate annually in the spring of each year. Specifically, ComEd releases a summer rate (4 months) and a non-Summer rate (8 months). ComEd then adjusts that rate in September.
As part of the program, the Village receives a civic contribution from that will be used to augment the revenues used to support sustainability-related projects and initiatives in the Village. There is nothing residents and small businesses need to do to participate in the program. All eligible accounts will be automatically enrolled. There is no enrollment fee to join, and no early termination fee, should you choose to leave the program.
Throughout the duration of the program, a small portion of households may be automatically switched between MC2 and ComEd electric supply. This is based on unique consumption patterns, such as volume, time of day, single family vs. multi-family homes, and volume during ComEd peak periods. If account service is switched to MC2 or ComEd, a notification letter will be mailed to the homeowner indicating this action. Households that are moved to ComEd supply service will receive a notice, indicating a return to ComEd supply service. Households that become automatically enrolled in the green aggregation program, will receive a noticed from ComEd confirming a switch to MC2.
Residents and businesses are also able to 'opt out' of the program at any time for no charge, meaning that those who wish not to participate in the green aggregation program can call MC2 at (833) 206-3586 within 21 days of mailing.
