Deerfield and its other partners from the North Shore Electricity Aggregation Consortium will announce their communal electricity rate tomorrow in Skokie.
a three‐year agreement with MC Squared Energy Services, the Consortium’s selected alternative electricity supplier that will supply power to an estimated 60,000 to 70,000 Consortium customers. This is one of the largest aggregation groups under a single form agreement in Illinois.
Later this month, eligible residents will get a letter from the Village explaining options which include receiving their electricity from Deerfield, continuing with Commonwealth Edison or finding their own supplier. ComEd will continue to distribute electricity through its infrastructure. This arrangement is for the power itself.
MC Squared Energy Services responded to the Consortium’s request for proposals for electricity aggregation services and was the lowest responsible bidder of seven vendors that submitted proposals.
As part of the agreement with MC Squared Energy Services, the Consortium communities will review electricity rates annually within the 36‐month time period to ensure that customers are receiving the best possible rate.
On March 20, Deerfield voters approved a referendum authorizing each consortium member to operate an “opt‐out” electricity aggregation program for its residents and small businesses. Through the intergovernmental agreement, the Consortium has been working together since December .
