Welcome Township of Jefferson Residents!
Welcome Township of Jefferson Residents!
Eligo Energy, a leading retail electricity supplier based in Chicago, is proud to have been chosen as the Township of Jefferson Aggregation Program electric supplier. On November 4, 2014, voters in the Township 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, the Township selected Eligo Energy to supply electricity for the Township of Jefferson Aggregation Program.
As part the Township of Jefferson Aggregation Program, Eligo Energy is providing you the opportunity to join other residents to save money on the electricity you use. The Township of Jefferson Aggregation Program fixed price available to all eligible Township residential and small commercial customers is 6.283 cents per kwh. As an eligible member of this program, you will automatically receive a price of 6.283 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) on your electricity supply through March of 2017. This price is significantly lower than ComEd's present price to compare of 7.572 cents per kWh (www.pluginillinois.org).
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 14 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 Township of Jefferson Aggregation Program.
Qualifying Township residents who previously opted-out of the program, recently moved to the Township of Jefferson 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 Township 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 Township of Jefferson 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 Township of Jefferson Aggregation Program impact my current situation and electricity bill?
The impact of the Townshipof Jefferson 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.
Presently, the Jefferson Municipal Electric Aggregation Rate is significantly lower than ComEd's Price To Compare.
|Electricity Supplier||Price per kWh|
|ComEd's Current Price to Compare* (through May 2015)||7.572¢|
|Jefferson Municipal Electric Aggregation Rate: (April 2015 – March 2017)||6.283¢|
*ComEd's price to compare is subject to change seasonally in June (summer rates) and October (non-summer rates) and also includes a Purchased Electricity Adjustment of ± 0.500 ¢/kWh – a component of ComEd's supply charges (see [www.pluginillinois.org](http://www.pluginillinois.org)). Jefferson Municipal Electric Aggregation Program Rate is fixed for the next two years.

What is the downside of the program?

Deregulation of energy in Illinois has resulted in downward pressure on prices across the State.
