On December 11, 2012, the Niles Board of Trustees an approved a resolution to authorize a referendum regarding municipal electrical aggregation.
Residents were asked if the Village of Niles should have the authority to arrange for the supply of electricity for its residential and small commercial retail customers who have not opted out of such program. The purpose of this program is to combine (aggregate) electricity service for the residents and small businesses in Niles in an attempt to save money on utility bills.
On April 9, 2013, a referendum was approved by residents to allow the Village of Niles to create an opt-out municipal electric aggregation program for eligible residential and small business customers (less than 15,000 kilowatts per year).
On April 25, 2017, the Village of Niles conducted an online auction for electric suppliers and determined that Eligo Energy offered the most competitive rate, which was more favorable than the ComEd rate to compare. The rate for the Village of Niles electrical aggregation program in effect from June 1, 2017 until August 31, 2018 is $0.0686. Most recently, the Village executed an extension with Eligo for three years, until September 2021.
Eligo Energy offers an electricity supply rate of $0.0686 per kilowatt hour through August 2018. After August 2018, Eligo's rate is $0.0759. If at any time ComEd drops their rate below Eligo's program in Niles, Eligo will match the lower ComEd rate.
