Plainfield says electric aggregation contract will not bring savings in final year


Since 2012, the village of Plainfield, along with other Will County communities, has negotiated a fixed price electricity supply contract for residents and small businesses.

The goal of the program was to provide electricity cost savings, but the village announced that the current contract will not provide savings in its final year.According to the village, the program has saved participating residents and businesses almost $30 million countywide. The average household has saved more than $400, compared with ComEd’s supply rates.

Based upon the terms of the contract, residents and businesses have the right to return to ComEd or any other supplier without an early termination fee. In order to return to ComEd, customers should call Homefield Energy at 1-866-694-1262 and let them know that they would like to return to ComEd supply service at the earliest possible date. Customers will need their account number.   The village said the change could take one to two billing cycles to take effect, depending on their meter read schedules.
