If you want to keep receiving power from ComEd, rather than an alternate supplier contracted by the city, Monday is the last day to opt out.
After voters approved a referendum in March to seek lower rates from an alternate supplier, the city council voted unanimously to purchase electricity from Constellation Energy.
Under the city’s agreement, Evanston residents and small businesses who participate will receive a 100 percent renewable energy mix for 12 months at the rate of $0.04797 per kilowatt hour, according to a release from the city. That means rates that are about 30 percent lower than ComEd’s summertime price.
Anyone who wishes to continue purchasing electricity from ComEd as a supplier must opt out of the program by Monday, June 25. To do so, customers may contact Constellation Energy in one of four ways, according to the release:
- Mail: Return the form provided in the opt-out letter in the pre-addressed stamped envelope.
- Fax: Fax completed Opt-Out form to 1-866-422-6233.
- Phone: Call Constellation Energy at 1-800-718-1493.
