Municipal Electric Aggregation Program
April 2022: 2,000 letters to be mailed to households this week
Opt-out letters will be sent to qualifying new customers that have moved into Skokie. Please read below for more information about the electric aggregation program.
Return to ComEd service letters will be sent to those accounts that are no longer benefiting the grant program due to a change in electricity consumption patterns. These accounts will automatically be transferred back to ComEd and the supply rate will remain the same - there is no increase or decrease in cost.

On August 2, 2021, the Village Board approved to enter into a three-year electrical aggregation contract with MC Squared Energy Services (MC2). Only some accounts have been identified to be automatically enrolled in the program. Contrary to the past aggregation program in 2012, savings to individual account holders is negligible. Instead, the primary benefit of the program is that the Village will receive a civic grant to support sustainability initiatives and other goals and objectives. Skokie will be using electric aggregation funding to conduct a greenhouse gas emissions inventory to incorporate those results into the next Village Sustainability Plan. The funding will also help support the Village in transitioning its streetlights to energy saving LED fixtures.
Per state regulation, notification of the program must be sent to all residential and small business account holders. Different letters will be mailed depending on the electric supply service received by a given account. Most letters will be for information only. If you received a notification that states it is for informational content only, no action is required.
If you received a notice that states that you will be automatically enrolled unless you opt-out, no action is required unless you wish to opt out. You have 21 days from the date on the notice to call MC Squared at (855) 697-0286. Please note your electric supply pricing will always match the ComEd tariff supply rate so there are no additional fees or increased or rates to participate. Additionally, there are no termination fees and you may leave the program at any time.
Please be aware that MC Squared will NOT solicit door to door for this program. They will not be calling you on the phone unless you initiate a call. Do not give your ComEd bill to anyone at your door or by phone unless you initiated the call first.
You are free to choose the supply option of your choice, but be cautious of teaser rates and other fees. If you have questions on your electric bill or supply charges, the Citizens Utility Board (CUB) is an excellent resource.
For those wishing to support local renewable energy and receive direct savings, check out Skokie's community solar program. You do not need to install solar panels on your roof to participate!
