Barrington Contracts with Dynegy for Alternate Electric Supply
Previously, voters passed a referendum authorizing the Village of Barrington to seek competitive electricity rates for eligible residential and small commercial retail customers by establishing an “opt-out” electric aggregation program. Dynegy was chosen as the retail electric supplier for the current term, which ends in August 2017. After a thorough bid process, Dynegy was again selected as the supplier for contract term August 2017-September 2018. Dynegy is an independent seller of power and energy service and is certified as an Alternative Retail Electricity Supplier by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC Docket No. 14-0336).
As an eligible participant, there are two supply options available to you – a Traditional option where the energy is supplied through traditional generation sources and a 100% Renewable option where 100% of your energy comes from renewable energy sources. All participants will be automatically enrolled in the Traditional program unless you call and request the 100% Renewable or “Green” energy option. If you do not want to participate in either program, you can choose to opt-out by returning the enclosed card before June 30, 2017.
- Rate for the Traditional Power Program is $0.06979 per kWh and is guaranteed until September 2018.
- Rate for the Renewable Power Program is $0.07170 per kWh and is guaranteed until September 2018.
- There is no enrollment, switching or early termination fee.
- This is a firm fixed all inclusive rate.
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 the utility, such as Budget Billing, payment agreements and energy efficiency programs. The only change will be in the Electric Supply price on your ComEd bill
Once your account is enrolled, you will receive a confirmation letter from ComEd confirming your "switch" to Dynegy. Approximately 30 to 45 days after enrollment you will receive your first bill with your new Dynegy price. Please review the enclosed Terms and Conditions for additional information.
If you choose not to participate, you can elect to be removed from the Program by completing and returning the enclosed Opt-Out Card or calling Dynegy at 844-351-7691 by June 30, 2017.
