Municipal electric aggregation allows municipalities to pool residential and small commercial retail customers together for the joint purchase of electricity. By creating these economies of scale, a community can leverage the buying power of thousands of residents and small businesses in an effort to obtain a lower price for the supply of electricity.
The Village of Glen Ellyn approved a 24 month contract with Constellation NewEnergy, Inc. as the Village’s energy supplier after receiving multiple bids from energy companies through the Electric Aggregation Program. The new contract with Constellation will go into effect October 1, 2018 and expire in October 2020.
The Glen Ellyn Rate (October 2018 to October 2020) is $0.07334 per kilowatt hour.
Residents and small businesses will be automatically included in the Village's aggregation program, unless they wish to opt-out. Small businesses are defined for the purposes of aggregation as those that use 15,000 kilowatt hours per year or less. Any business utilizing more than 15,000 kilowatt hours per year cannot be included in the Village's aggregation program, but may have an opportunity to seek out an individual contract with an alternative electricity supplier.
All eligible residents and small businesses will be automatically enrolled in the program unless they "opt-out." Before the new contract began all residents received notice to opt out of the program.
The only impact residents will see resulting from the aggregation program will be a lower electricity supply rate on the monthly bill. ComEd will continue to bill all residents on a monthly basis, and continue to be the utility provider delivering electricity to homes and businesses. Residents would continue to receive a ComEd bill and would continue to call ComEd in case of an outage or service need.

From time to time, the Village receives reports that companies are engaging in door-to-door and phone solicitation as an electrical supplier in the Village. These companies are not affiliated with the Village's Electricity Aggregation Program. Any company asking you to "sign-up", or make any advance payments, is not affiliated with the Village of Glen Ellyn proposed Aggregation Program.
If your business utilizes 15,000 kilowatt hours per year or more, you are ineligible to participate in the Village's aggregation program, per the Illinois Commerce Commission. However, businesses have the option to contract individually with alternative retail electric suppliers and receive a lower rate than ComEd. More information on rate options is available at the Plug In Illinois website. Additionally, businesses may consider the Clean Air Counts Energy Savings Program for an individual contract.
