After evaluation of competitive bids, the Village of Oak Lawn has selected MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (mc2) to administer the Green Electricity Aggregation Program. The selection of mc2 ensures that the power supply cost for participating residential and small business customers will not be greater than the ComEd basic service tariff rate, while providing the Village with Wind Generated Renewable Energy Certificates equal to 50% of the historical usage of eligible participants.This program will also position the Village to be designated as an EPA Green Power Partner Community at no increased cost for the residents.
What is electricity aggregation?
On August 10, 2009, Governor Quinn signed into law Public Act 096-0176, which allows municipalities to arrange for the provision of electricity to residential and small commercial retail customers by alternative electric suppliers (i.e. suppliers other than ComEd). Under this law, the municipality may seek bids for the provision of aggregate electricity supply services to their residents and small businesses.
