Renewable Energy Certificates ("RECs") are proof that electricity was generated from renewable electricity and was fed into the shared electrical grid. Renewable Energy Certificates provide a mechanism for the purchase of renewable energy that is added to and pulled from the electrical grid. 1 REC = 1 MWh of electricity (1,000 kWh).

Municipal aggregations are groups of customers, or entire communities that unite to pool, or aggregate their energy buying power. By pooling buying power and negotiating terms with a supplier other than the traditional utility, a municipal aggregation program can often provide more favorable terms for its participants, such as the procurement of Renewable Energy Certificates and /or a civic contribution for the municipality. ComEd is still responsible for delivering that power to your home, responding to outages, and billing you for electricity.

The impact of the aggregation program is environmental. This program promotes renewable energy, a clean environment, and creates jobs for American citizens. As part of the program, the Village will receive Renewable Energy Certificates ("RECs") from midwestern renewable energy resources to match the aggregation’s residential and small commercial electricity load. Your utility bill will remain the same other than Eligo matching ComEd’s pricing on energy supply. You will continue to receive a single bill, make one payment, and continue to receive all other services through ComEd.
If you are chosen to be supplied by Eligo based on your electricity usage profile, Eligo’s rate will take effect within your October 2020 billing cycle, depending on your meter read date.
Your electricity bill generally has several cost components – distribution and supply. The aggregation program changes only the supply component of your bill -- and, in this case, the price will continue to track ComEd’s. All other components of the bill will not be affected. As part of the program, the Village will receive Renewable Energy Certificates ("RECs") from renewable energy to match the aggregation’s residential and small commercial electricity load.
Yes, you will be billed exactly as you always have been by ComEd and will receive one monthly bill for all charges. The only difference you’ll see on your electric bill is that Eligo Energy will be listed on the supply portion of your bill.
If you are a ComEd customer, generally, ComEd will not impose any switching fee for participating in an aggregation program. If you are on Retail Energy Supply, and your current provider imposes an early termination fee, please file a complaint with the Illinois Commerce Commission. As of January 2020, Retail Energy Suppliers are no longer permitted to charge early termination fees from residential and small commercial customers.
Residential or small commercial customers located in the Village of Glen Ellyn may participate. Eligible Customers will be placed on Supplier service or Tariffed Service based on Supplier’s criteria, such as, for example, the customer’s usage patterns and wholesale market conditions. Eligible Customers will be assessed the same price and will continue to receive monthly invoice statements from ComEd without regard to whether they are served by Supplier or ComEd. Customers enrolled in real time pricing, Power Smart Pricing, electric space heat rate, or served by an alternative retail electric supplier may also be eligible but are not automatically enrolled. If you are in one of these programs or with a different supplier, you will need to review your pricing and contractual obligations in order to determine which options are available to you at this time. You may always call Eligo Energy with any eligibility questions at (312) 262-6656.
A "Small Commercial Customer" is a retail customer with an annual electricity consumption of less than 15,000 kilowatt-hours.
The Glen Ellyn Aggregation Program is an opt-out program. That means that there is nothing you need to do to enroll. You will automatically be included in the aggregation program, unless you choose not to participate and opt-out. Qualifying Glen Ellyn residents who previously opted-out of the program, recently moved to the Glen Ellyn community, or are receiving service from another supplier may still enroll in the program. To enroll, call Eligo Energy at (312) 262-6656. Please have your utility account number for enrollments.

Before enrolling in the aggregation program, you should evaluate how the aggregation compares to your existing ComEd hourly service. Aggregation pricing is designed to match ComEd’s non-hourly residential rates. Your hourly pricing is different and potential savings from the aggregation depend on your actual hourly use patterns. Accordingly, any potential savings from the aggregation compared to your current utility hourly service may vary from customer to customer. You should also review the terms and conditions applicable to your ComEd hourly service. The terms and conditions of ComEd hourly service may prevent you from joining the program at this time. Additional information to help you evaluate your supply options can be found on the Illinois Commerce Commission’s website.
Net Metering customers may forfeit credits for electric supply service, delivery service, or both, if they switch to the Aggregation Supplier. Additional information to help you evaluate your supply options can be found on the Illinois Commerce Commission’s website.

No one from Eligo Energy or the Village of Glen Ellyn will ever visit your home to sign you up for electricity services or call you to enroll. If someone calls or visits your home, that person is not from the Government Aggregation program and is likely trying to get you to switch to another Retail Electricity Supplier that is NOT a part of the Village of Glen Ellyn Aggregation.
Residents of municipalities that enrolled in aggregation programs in the State of Illinois are not reporting any negative issues. Moreover, this is a green program at no extra cost to the residents or the Village, which also includes a civic grant to the Village.
