Electrical Aggregation

On March 20, 2012, residents of Kenilworth and Wilmette, collectively called the Lakeshore Power Alliance, approved a referendum authorizing community leaders to buy electricity in bulk from a supplier other than ComEd.  After an extensive bidding process, the Lakeshore Power Alliance has selected MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (mc2), to provide electricity supply services to member communities for the next three years.
 

July 24, 2012 - Electricity Aggregation Precautions:  MC Squared Energy Services has alerted the Village of Kenilworth that several residents have received calls from electricity suppliers allegedly falsely representing the Village’s electricity aggregation program. 

In general, mc2 will not contact individual residents unless they initiate the contact.  It is recommended that residents not give their ComEd account number to an inbound call claiming to represent the Village’s electricity program.
 
If a resident believes they have received false or misleading information from any electric service provider, an informal complaint can be filed by contacting the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) from 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday at (800) 524-0795 or using the ICC’s on-line complaint process at http://www.icc.illinois.gov/consumer/complaint/wizard.aspx. Residents can also file a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office at (800) 243-0618 or http://www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov/consumers/filecomplaint.html.

If a resident unintentionally switched to another supplier but wishes to stay with mc2 on the Village’s electricity aggregation program, the resident should be instructed to contact ComEd at 1-800-Edison-1 immediately and request that the account be “reinstated” back to mc2. If too much time has lagged between the switch date and this request, ComEd may not be able to reinstate the customer and they will be required to “Opt-in” to the Electricity Aggregation program.

If you have questions, please contact Village Hall at (847) 251-1666.
