Cheaper Electric Bills
It’s True! Park Ridge, Deerfield, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Northbrook, and Skokie formed the North Shore Electricity Aggregation Consortium, a joint purchasing cooperative.
The Consortium sought competitive bids from Illinois Commerce Commission -approved electricity suppliers. On April 6, 2012, a three-year agreement was executed between each Consortium community and MC Squared Energy Services. The rate will be rebid annually and will never exceed the rate charged by ComEd. A letter from Mayor Schmidt and related information was sent to all Park Ridge ComEd customers on April 23 advising of the agreement.
If you wish to take advantage of the negotiated lower rates, simply do nothing. You will see significant savings on your ComEd bill. If you choose to not take advantage of this agreement, return the card that was enclosed with your letter.
