Welcome Village of McCook Residents!
Eligo Energy, a leading retail electricity supplier based in Chicago, is proud to have been chosen as the Village of McCook Government Aggregation program electric supplier. On March 20, 2012, voters in the Village of McCook approved a referendum allowing the community to enter into an electricity purchasing agreement to maximize the electricity supply savings for its residential and small business customers. After an extensive bidding process, McCook selected Eligo Energy to supply electricity for the McCook Aggregation Program.
As part of the McCook Government Aggregation Program, Eligo Energy is providing you the opportunity to join other residents to save money on the electricity you use. The McCook Government Aggregation Program fixed price available to all eligible McCook residential and small commercial customers is 6.53 cents per kwh starting from the first meter reading in September of 2017 and expiring in August of 2020. There is nothing you need to do in order to participate in the savings. We will automatically process your enrollment, unless you return the opt-out card that you received by mail within 15 days of the postmark date on the notice. After your enrollment is finalized, Eligo Energy will send you a letter confirming your enrollment and welcoming you to the McCook Aggregation Program.
For eligible customers interested in 100% renewable energy, Eligo is proud to provide a clean energy sources option. Through this program, 100% of your electricity supply requirements will come from green energy. To enroll in this program, please click GO GREEN below or call Eligo at 312-260-0885. Clean energy program may be subject to slightly higher rates per kwh.
Qualifying McCook residents who previously opted-out of the program, recently moved to the McCook community, or are receiving service from another supplier may still enroll in the program. Click the Enroll button below to enroll today through our quick, easy enrollment process. In addition, Eligo will continue to send opt-out letters several times a year to eligible McCook customers who have recently opened accounts with ComEd, ensuring that every customer has an opportunity to opt-out before being enrolled.
ComEd will continue sending monthly bills, responding to outages, and delivering electricity. No one from the Aggregation Program will ever come to your door to ask you to switch to a new supplier. Anyone who does come to your door is NOT with the McCook Aggregation Program.

What is a municipal aggregation?
Municipal aggregations are groups of customers, or entire communities, that unite to pool, or aggregate, their energy buying power. By pooling their buying power and negotiating the price of power from a supplier other than the traditional utility, municipal aggregations can often save participants money on their electricity bills. ComEd would still be responsible for delivering that power to your home, responding to outages, and billing you for it.
How will the Village of McCook Aggregation Program impact my current situation and electricity bill?
The impact of the Village of McCook Aggregation Program is primarily savings. Your utility bill will remain the same other than a price reduction on energy supply. You will continue to receive a single bill, make one payment, and continue to receive all other services through ComEd.
What is my rate under the Village of McCook Aggregation Program?
As an eligible member of this program, you will automatically receive a price of 6.53 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) on your electricity supply starting from the first meter reading in September of 2017 and expiring in August of 2020.
What part of my electricity bill will this program affect?
Your electricity bill generally has several cost components – distribution and supply. The aggregation program changes only the supply component of your bill. All other components of the bill will not be affected.
Are there additional fees for participating in aggregation program?
If you are a ComEd customer, generally, ComEd will not impose any switching fee for participating in Aggregation Program.
Who is eligible to participate?
Residential or small commercial customers located in the Village of McCook may participate. A "Small Commercial Customer" is a retail customer with an annual electricity consumption of less than 15,000 kilowatt-hours. Customers enrolled in real time pricing, Power Smart Pricing, electric space heat rate, or served by an alternative retail electric supplier are eligible under the law, but are not necessarily automatically enrolled. If you are in one of these programs or with a different supplier, you will need to review your pricing and contractual obligations in order to determine which options are available to you at this time. You may always call us with any eligibility questions at 312-260-0885.
How do I enroll in the Village of McCook Aggregation Program?
The Village of McCook Aggregation Program is an opt-out program. That means that there is nothing you need to do to enroll. You will automatically be included in the aggregation program, unless you choose not to participate and opt-out.
Qualifying Village of McCook residents who previously opted-out of the program, recently moved to the Village of McCook community, or are receiving service from another supplier may still enroll in the program. Click the Enroll button below to enroll today through our quick, easy enrollment process or call us at 312-260-0885. Please have your utility account number for enrollments.
Is there a Green Energy option under the Village of McCook Aggregation Program?

Do I have to participate in the Village of McCook Aggregation Program if I do not want to?
No. Although the Village of McCook Aggregation Program is designed to provide savings for you, residents and small businesses that do not want to participate can opt-out without penalty. To opt-out, you just need to return the opt-out form attached to the opt-out letter you received.
If I am automatically enrolled in the program now, can I leave the program at any time?
If you do not wish to participate in the electricity supply savings, after the opt-out period, you may rescind your agreement without penalty up to 10 calendar days after ComEd processes the enrollment request. After the 10-day rescission period, early termination fees (ETFs) may apply. Please see your Terms & Conditions for more details.
Can I enroll later if I opt-out now?
You may request to join the program online at http://www.eligoenergy.com/cities/il/mccook or call 312-260-0885 for enrollment information. You may also visit www.eligoenergy.com for other rate plan options. Program terms and conditions may differ from the aggregation program.
I already have electric service with this supplier at a different rate. How can I join the Aggregation Program to get this new, lower rate?
Enroll online at http://www.eligoenergy.com/cities/il/mccook or call 312-260-0885 for information about how to switch to the more favorable rate negotiated on your behalf by the Village of McCook.
Who shall I call if there is an outage or issues with my electricity bill?
ComEd will remain responsible for the delivery of the electricity. All service and billing questions will continue to be directed to ComEd. To reach ComEd, please call (800) 334-7661.
I'm on ComEd's budget billing plan. Will that change?
No, you can stay on the budget billing plan.
Can I still have my payment automatically deducted from my checking account as I do now?
Yes. The way you pay your ComEd bill will not change.
Can I enroll if I am on ComEd's Hourly Program?
Before enrolling in the aggregation, you should evaluate how the aggregation compares to your existing ComEd hourly service. Potential savings from the aggregation depend on your actual hourly use patterns. Accordingly, any potential savings from the aggregation compared to your current utility hourly service may vary from customer to customer. You should also review the terms and conditions applicable to your ComEd hourly service. The terms and conditions of ComEd hourly service may prevent you from joining the Program at this time. Additional information to help you evaluate your supply options can be found on the Illinois Commerce Commission's website: www.pluginillinois.org.
Can I enroll if I am on ComEd's Net Metering Program?
Before enrolling in the aggregation, you should compare the Village of Niles aggregation rate to the rate you are currently paying for electric supply to determine if you would benefit from participation in the aggregation. You should review the terms and conditions associated with your current electric supply, or check directly with your current electric supplier, to determine if there are any penalties or fees associated with an early termination of your current electric supply agreement. Net Metering customers may forfeit credits for electric supply service and delivery service, or both, if they switch to the Aggregation Supplier. Additional information to help you evaluate your supply options can be found on the Illinois Commerce Commission's website: www.pluginillinois.org.
Will someone come to my home or call to sign me up?
No one from Eligo Energy or the Village of McCook will ever visit your home to sign you up, or call you to enroll. If someone calls or visits your home, that person is not from the Government Aggregation program.
What is the downside of the program?
Residents of municipalities that enrolled in aggregation programs over the last three years in the State of Illinois are reporting no negative issues and are generally pleased with the fixed rates on their electricity bills and the resulting rate stability. Deregulation of energy in Illinois has resulted in downward pressure on prices across the State.
