New ComEd Rates Lower Than Electric Aggregation Program

In March 2014, Algonquin voters approved a referendum that authorized the establishment of a voluntary opt-out electric aggregation program.  Algonquin and five other McHenry County communities came together to form the Northern Illinois Governmental Electric Aggregation Consortium (NIGEAC) that administers the program for each of the members.  NIGEAC currently has an agreement with Constellation Energy Services which includes no risk termination options, ensuring that residents and business could leave the program at any time if better rates became available. 

New ComEd Rate:  Effective June 2016, ComEd’s new electric rates are 6.19 cents/kWh.  As this new ComEd base rate is lower than the NIGEAC's negotiated rate of 6.89 cents/kWh, the Village of Algonquin reminds residents and small businesses that they are able to leave the NIGEAC program at any time without penalty or any disruption of service. 

To Leave NIGEAC Program:  This may be done by calling Constellation Energy Services at 1-844-257-8244.  Please have your ComEd bill available when calling to provide your account number.  Upon discontinuing service with Constellation Energy Services, electrical service and billings will both be handled by ComEd and customers will be billed the ComEd rate for their power supply.
