Welcome to the Village of Villa Park Residents and Small Business Owners
The Village of Villa Park is pleased to inform you that we will be resuming an electric municipal aggregation program. The program was recommended by the Environmental Concerns Commission and was discussed at two Village Board meetings.
Chicago-based MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (“mc2”) has been selected to serve eligible Villa Park residents and small business customers at the fixed rate of $0.0789 per kilowatt-hour (kWh). This locked-in rate will not change during the 25-month term of the agreement, beginning with the September 2023 ComEd meter read cycle through October 2025.
The current variable ComEd rate is $0.0698 ComEd with State mandated 17% green energy.
The Village’s green electric aggregation program with mc2 includes Midwest-generated wind, solar, and hydroelectric Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to 100% of the electricity consumed by the participating accounts during the program term. The RECs will be retired in the Village’s name, and the Village will be designated as an EPA Green Power Community.
There is nothing you need to do in order to participate as mc2 will automatically process your enrollment, unless you opt out of the program.
What is electric aggregation?
On August 10, 2009, Governor Quinn signed into law Public Act 096-0176, which allows municipalities to arrange for the provision of electric 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 electric supply services to their residents and small businesses.
Not interested? Can I opt-out and return to ComEd?
Residents can opt out at any point of the program at no cost or charge. This can be done by calling 833-939-0452 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If residents opted out, and now know more, can they opt back in?
Residents can opt in at any time. To do so visit, www.mc2energyservices.com.
Who is eligible to participate?
Eligible residential requirements: All residents located in the Village of Villa Park as indicated by ComEd, are eligible to participate.
Eligible business requirements: All small businesses located in the Village of Villa Park as indicated by ComEd, with a ComEd designated annual usage of 15,000 kWh or less, are eligible to participate.
What will change on my electric bill if I’m enrolled?
You will continue to receive a single bill from ComEd each month. “MC Squared Energy Services” will be designated as your supplier in the “Supply” section of your ComEd bill. ComEd will continue to bill you for distribution services and taxes. Payments should still be sent to ComEd at the address provided. There is no impact to ComEd services such as Budget Billing, Peak Time Savings and/or financial assistance.
Will I receive notification of the supplier change?
ComEd will always mail a confirmation letter indicating a service change.
Is there an early termination fee?
There is no termination fee; you are only obligated to pay for services rendered under the contract until your service is terminated.
Will my electric service be disrupted when I switch?
No, there will be no disruption in service. You will continue to receive the same electric service through the same transmission and distribution system currently operated by ComEd. The switch to mc2 is seamless.
What happens at the end of the program term?
At the end of the term, if the Village decides to end the program, all accounts served by mc2 will be returned to ComEd service.
Summary of benefits?
• Electric supply price is fixed for the duration of the term.
• Midwest-generated wind Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) equal to 100% of the electricity consumed by the participating accounts.
• Residents and small businesses may opt out at any time with no termination fees.
