Did you get a letter from Com Ed?

If you received a letter recently from ComEd that indicated that your electricity contract is expiring, don’t worry — your electricity service will continue uninterrupted. The City of Highland Park recently entered into a new contract for the purchase of electricity for residents. During the transition, all homes in the program will go back to ComEd temporarily before switching to Integrys. This will happen automatically — you don’t need to do anything. There’s a more detailed explanation here.

Highland Park Approves Green Energy Contract

On March 23, the City Council approved a new contract for residents who are currently in its municipal aggregation program. The two year agreement with Integrys provides cost savings over the ComEd rate, and also includes the purchase of renewable energy credits (RECs). One REC is produced for each megawatt hour of renewable electricity put on the grid, and will help finance renewable energy generation. The REC option will add approximately $1.60 per month to the electricity bill for an average Highland Park home.
