Welcome Village of Evergreen Park Residents!

Eligo Energy, a leading retail electricity supplier based in Chicago, is proud to have been chosen as the Village of Evergreen Park Municipal Aggregation Program electric supplier. On March 20, 2012, voters in the Village of Evergreen Park 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. Since the Village's electric aggregation program began, thousands of eligible Evergreen Park residential and small commercial customers collectively saved approximately $2,200,000 as compared to what they would have paid to ComEd.

As part the Village of Evergreen Park Municipal Aggregation Program, Eligo Energy is providing you the opportunity to join other residents to save money on the electricity you use. The Aggregation Program fixed price available to all eligible Evergreen Park residential and small commercial customers is 6.92 cents per kwh and a $6.50 monthly service charge starting from your first applicable meter reading and expiring in July 2017. 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 form that you received by mail within 15 days of the postmark date on the notice or rescind your enrollment within seven days of receiving a letter from ComEd.

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 residents who previously opted-out of the program, recently moved to the community, or are receiving service from another supplier may still enroll in the program. Click the Enroll button below to enroll today through our easy enrollment process. In addition, Eligo will continue to send opt-out letters several times a year to eligible customers who have recently opened accounts with ComEd, ensuring that every customer has an opportunity to opt-out before being enrolled.

You will remain a ComEd customer for all services but the electricity supply. Your distribution charges from ComEd will not change as a result of your participation in this program. You will continue to receive a single bill from ComEd. Payments and service questions will continue to be with ComEd. You will continue to be eligible for all ComEd payment options, including budget billing. If you are currently enrolled in the state's Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) program, you will continue to receive the program's full benefits. ComEd continues to be responsible for the wires, poles, and all emergencies, including outage restoration. There will be no lapse in your electricity service.

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 Aggregation Program.

If you have questions about the Village of Evergreen Park Municipal Aggregation Program, please see Frequently Asked Questions and Terms and Conditions sections. You can also call us at 312-260-0885.

Sincerely,

Eligo Energy Team

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 Aggregation Program impact my current situation and electricity bill?

The impact of the Aggregation Program is primarily savings. You will remain a ComEd customer for all services but the electricity supply. You will continue to receive a single bill, make one payment, and continue to receive all other services through ComEd. Your distribution charges from ComEd will not change as a result of your participation in this program. You will continue to receive a single bill from ComEd. Payments and service questions will continue to be with ComEd. You will continue to be eligible for all ComEd payment options, including budget billing. If you are currently enrolled in the state's Percentage of Income Payment Plan (PIPP) program, you will continue to receive the program's full benefits. ComEd continues to be responsible for the wires, poles, and all emergencies, including outage restoration. There will be no lapse in your electricity service.

What is my rate under the Aggregation Program?

As an eligible member of this program, you will automatically receive a price of 6.92 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) as well as a $6.50 monthly service charge starting from the first applicable meter reading and expiring in July 2017.

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. You will remain a ComEd customer for all services but the electricity supply. You will continue to receive a single bill, make one payment, and continue to receive all other services through ComEd.

If you are a customer with a supplier other than ComEd and would like to participate in this program, please contact us at 312-260-0885 to find out if you are eligible for a rebate on any switching fees imposed by your previous supplier.

Who is eligible to participate?

Residential or small commercial customers located in the Village of Evergreen Park 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 are presently 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 Aggregation Program?

The Aggregation Program is an opt-out program. That means that unless you are with a supplier other than ComEd, 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 residents who previously opted-out of the program, recently moved to the community, or are receiving service from another supplier may still enroll in the program.

Do I have to participate in the Village of Evergreen Park Municipal Aggregation Program?

No. After an extensive bidding process, the Village selected Eligo Energy, a leading retail electricity supplier based in Chicago, to provide eligible residents and small business customers with electricity supply savings. Although the Village designed the Aggregation Program to provide savings for you, customers that do not want to participate can opt-out without penalty within 15 days of receiving the opt-out notice or rescind their enrollments within ten calendar days of receiving a ComEd notice letter. To opt-out, you just need to return the opt-out form enclosed with the opt-out letter you received. Please note that if you wish to participate in the savings of the Aggregation Program, you do not need to do anything.

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, return your opt-out form. After the opt-out period, you may rescind your agreement without penalty up to ten calendar days after ComEd processes the enrollment request. After the 10-day rescission period, switching fees may apply. Please see your Terms & Conditions for 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/evergreenpark 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/evergreenpark or call 312-260-0885 for information about how to switch to the more favorable rate negotiated on your behalf by the Village of Evergreen Park.

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.

Will someone come to my home or call to sign me up?

No one from Eligo Energy or the Village of Evergreen Park 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 reduced rates on their electric bills and rate stability. Deregulation of energy in Illinois has resulted in downward pressure on prices across the State. Since the Village's electric aggregation program began, thousands of eligible Evergreen Park residential and small commercial customers collectively saved approximately $2,200,000 as compared to what they would have paid to ComEd.
