Lower Electricity Rates

Eligible residents and small businesses in eight north suburban communities (collectively called the North Shore Electricity Aggregation Consortium) are experiencing lower electricity rates*.

On March 20, 2012, residents of Deerfield, Glencoe, Highland Park, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Northbrook, Park Ridge and Skokie approved a referendum authorizing community leaders to buy electricity in bulk from a supplier other than ComEd. After an extensive bidding process, the North Shore Consortium has selected MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (mc²), to provide electricity supply services to member communities through May 2015.

For more information and program details, visit our FAQs or your individual community link.

1 Savings estimates are illustrative and based on a comparison of the mc2 rate to an estimated ComEd Basic Electric Service rate starting June 2014 through May 2015, including the Purchased Electricity Supply Charge, Transmission Services Charge, and the Purchased Electricity Adjustment (PEA) Charge estimated at 0.0 cents/kWh. For comparison purposes, the ComEd PEA charge is estimated at 0.0 cents/kWh but can vary monthly between -0.5 and 0.5 cents/kWh.
