Long Grove Suspends Electric Aggregation Program. The Village of Long Grove established an electric aggregation program in 2012 in which the average participating ratepayer has saved $635 to date for a cumulative Village savings of $1,367,000. The current program expires in May 2017. The Village received competitive bids to extend the program; however, the Village could not obtain rates that would be guaranteed to be lower than the ComEd rate. Residents do not need to take any action; they will automatically be moved back to ComEd at their meter read date in May, which will be reflected on ComEd bills received in June. If you have any questions regarding the program, you may call the Village’s consultant, NIMEC, at 800-727-3820 to leave your question and callback number. You will be contacted by NIMEC within 24 hours. Further details are available here.
