Electrical Aggregation
llinois law allows municipalities and counties to purchase electricity on behalf of residential and small business utility customers within their borders. Electrical aggregation --- which means the Village of Orland Park buys electricity in bulk at a discounted rate --- came to the village in 2012.

Electric power is produced by a company other than ComEd with ComEd continuing to supply electricity over its electricity grid. ComEd customers who are part of the purchasing group are billed by ComEd and continue to contact ComEd with service needs.

On June 6, 2016 the Village was informed that ComEd had reduced its rate for the June 2016 to May 2017 period.  Their rate consists of a summer rate (4 months) and a non-summer rate (8 Months). 

The Village's agreement with FirstEnergy Solutions has a Price Guaranty provision that allows them to either reduce its cost to the new ComEd rate for the final year of the agreement, or terminate and allow the Village to re-bid the aggregation, or be released back to ComEd.

Since ComEd's rates are below the current aggregation price, FirstEnergy has informed the Village that they will agree to match the original rates set by ComEd.  Therefore, the new rate will drop in June, 2016 from 6.46 cents to the 6.27 cent rate.

FirstEnergy Solutions sent letters to the residents informing of this rate reduction.

Residents and eligible small business accounts are automatically enrolled unless they have already changed to an alternate supplier or are in a residential real time program (RRTP). There is no cost to enroll.

Since the program started in 2012, residents that have participated in the Electrical Aggregation Program have realized savings of approximately $439 per household.  The overall community savings has been over $8.3 million.  The contract with FirstEnergy Solutions ends May, 2017.

Calculating Your Savings

Now that the village has completed the Municipal Aggregation Program, residents are enjoying their lower electric rates. Northern Illinois Municipal Electric Collaborative (NIMEC) has created a website to help village residents “see” their savings. It takes about 30 seconds to calculate your monthly / annual savings.
