Opt-out of Electricity Aggregation Program Deadline June 25
Monday, June 25 is the deadline for Evanston residents and small businesses to opt-out of the city’s Electricity Aggregation Program if they do not wish to participate.
On April 30, 2012, the Evanston City Council voted unanimously to purchase electricity from Constellation Energy, an Alternate Retail Electricity Supplier (ARES), for the city’s Electricity Aggregation Program. Under the agreement with Constellation Energy, Evanston residents and small businesses that participate in the program will receive 100% renewable energy mix for a term of 12 months at a rate of $0.04797 per kilowatt hour, which is 30% lower when compared to ComEd’s summertime price.
All eligible customers have the right to opt-out of the program and continue to have ComEd purchase their electricity supply. Customers wishing to opt-out must contact Constellation Energy using one of the following four methods by June 25:
1. Mail: Return the form provided in the opt-out letter in the pre-addressed stamped envelope.
2. Fax: Fax completed Opt-Out form to 1-866-422-6233.
3. Phone: Call Constellation Energy at 1-800-718-1493.
4. Web: Visit home.constellation.com/optout.
Opt-out notices (view here) have been mailed out by Constellation Energy to eligible customers. The envelope and letter will include the city’s logo and refer to the city’s electricity aggregation program.
Questions or comments about the Electricity Aggregation Program should be submitted to 3-1-1.
