The Village of Hawthorn Woods is pleased to announce the negotiation of a new municipal aggregation agreement with NIMEC (Northern Illinois Municipal Electric Collaborative). The Village is leaving First Energy Solutions and contracting with Chicago-based MC Squared Energy Services as our municipal aggregation supplier. The program term begins in February 2020 through February 2023. With competitive bids from qualified suppliers all above the ComEd rate, the Village chose a program that guarantees competitive rates from green energy sources and also provides a new benefit. All pay exactly the ComEd rate and the Village is provided with an environmental reserve fund – at no cost to residents or the Village. We are proud that our participation in this aggregation program from inception to date has saved our residents over $1.7 Million Dollars.
This week, all residents will receive a letter from your electricity supplier. You need to do nothing to participate in the aggregation program. If your letter says you will be enrolled with MC Squared Energy Services, you will receive a second notice from ComEd in January confirming your switch to MC Squared. If your letter says you will remain with ComEd, you also need to do nothing. Either way, you pay the same rate and will be considered a program participant.
If you choose to opt out of the Village aggregation program, you may do so at any time. Whether you are with MC Squared or ComEd, you pay exactly the same rate, so there will be no difference in your billing amount due. There are no termination fees. To opt out, please view the opt out letter here.
If you should have any questions, please call the Village of Hawthorn Woods aggregation program supplier, MC Squared, at 855-285-7838. If you require additional assistance, please call the Village’s energy consultant, NIMEC, at 800-727-3820, to leave your question and callback number. You will be contacted by NIMEC within 24 hours.
