Welcome Palos Township Residents and Small Businesses!

Dear Palos Township Residents,

We are very excited to offer a new green energy program for Palos Township residents and small business at no extra cost to you or the Township. This program promotes renewable energy, a clean environment, and creates jobs for American citizens. As part of the program, the Township will receive Renewable Energy Certificates ("RECs") from renewable energy sources such as wind, solar, captured heat and others to match the community’s entire residential and small commercial electricity load.

Palos Township currently offers an ‘opt out’ electric municipal aggregation program to all residential and qualified small businesses from October 2019 – October 2021. The program will be administered by Eligo Energy IL, LLC, a leading electricity supplier located in Chicago. As an eligible member of this program, your green energy rate will always be equal to ComEd’s residential Price to Compare ("PTC" - www.pluginillinois.org/FixedRateBreakdownComEd.aspx) with one very important difference – your energy usage will be offset by 20% renewable energy. There are no enrollment, switching, or early termination fees. You need do nothing to participate; your account will be automatically enrolled unless you opt out. NO CHANGES IN YOUR BILLING. You will continue to receive one monthly bill from ComEd. You will still be eligible for the same programs you are eligible for now through ComEd, such as Budget Billing, payment agreements, and energy efficiency programs. The only change will be in the Electric Supply price on your ComEd bill – www.comed.com/customer-service/billing-payment/understand-bill/Pages/residential.aspx.

You may also purchase your electricity supply from other Retail Electric Suppliers or ComEd. For more information, visit www.pluginillinois.org. You may request from the Illinois Power Agency, without charge, a list of all supply options available to you in a format that allows comparison of prices and products.

ENROLLMENT PROCESS. Once your account is enrolled, you will receive a confirmation letter from ComEd confirming your switch to Eligo. Approximately 30 to 45 days after enrollment, you will receive your first ComEd bill to reflect the new Eligo price. Please review the enclosed Terms and Conditions for additional information.

OPT-OUT INSTRUCTIONS. If you choose not to participate in this green aggregation program, you can elect to be removed from the Program by emailing Eligo at PalosTownshipOptOut@eligoenergy.com, calling Eligo at 312-260-0885, or completing and mailing back the enclosed Opt-Out form by 9/9/2019. If you have questions or need additional information about the Program, please visit the FAQs and community-specific information below. Eligo Customer Care is available 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Friday at 312-260-0885.

Please note: to participate in the program, you do not need to respond. Opt-out only if you do not want to participate in the Palos Township green electric municipal aggregation program. Although Palos Township is offering this program, we ask that rather than calling the Township, you direct specific aggregation program questions to Eligo at 312-260-0885
