Huntley "Opt Out" Electric Letters In The Mail
The Illinois Commerce Commission now lists the new ComEd "price to compare" for non-Summer power--not including transmission charges--as 7.722 cents per KWH through next May. The price under Huntley's new agreement with supplier Direct Energy will be 4.169 cents per KWH through next July with no difference between non-Summer and hot-month rates.
Residents will have until June 13 to reject automatic entrollment in Huntley's aggregation plan. Assistant Administrator Barb Read said Wednesday "Opt In" letters for residents who want to voluntarily join the program haven't been sent yet. "We're pushing to get them out," she said.
For those uncertain about what to do, Huntley's latest Village Journal reports its municipal aggregation program "allows residents and businesses to leave free of charge at any time for any reason."
