Northwest Aggregation Consortium manages community power deals for Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove,
Lincolnshire, Long Grove, Palatine, Vernon Hills and Wheeling. Since starting in
2012, the consortium estimates it has saved those residents a combined total of $26
million by negotiating community deals.
- But the market has changed, and it has become more difficult to secure savings through a community power deal. So the consortium has announced that
residents are scheduled to be automatically switched back to ComEd in May. The change will be reflected on June bills.
will receive a letter informing them of the change in April. They don't need
to do anything. The switch back to ComEd will be automatic.
- It's likely that ComEd is the best bet in the current market. CUB is
concerned that sales representatives for alternative suppliers will flood the
community with marketing pitches, and consumers might get lured into bad deals.
