Following the passage of a voter referendum, the Village contracted to procure lower-cost electric supply for residents and small businesses via an Electric Aggregation Program in 2012. Most recently, the Village has contracted with Dynegy Energy Services. Dynegy Energy Services (DES) was chosen by the Village of Riverside as the retail electric supplier for our 2015-2017 aggregation program. Dynegy Energy Services is an independent seller of power and energy service and is certified as an Alternative Retail Electricity Supplier by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC Docket No. 14-0336).
The rate for electric supply is $0.07243 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) from August 2015 - August 2016 and $0.06950 per kWh from August 2016 - August 2017
This program includes 100% Renewable Energy Credits for all power consumed through the term.
There is no enrollment, switching or early termination fee.
This is a firm fixed all inclusive rate guaranteed until August 2017.
No Changes in Your Billing
You will continue to receive 1 monthly bill from ComEd. You will still be eligible for the same programs you are eligible for now through the utility, such as Budget Billing, payment agreements and energy efficiency programs. The only change will be in the Electric Supply price on your ComEd bill.
Once your account is enrolled, you will receive a confirmation letter from ComEd confirming your "switch" to DES. Approximately 30 to 45 days after enrollment you will receive your first bill with your new DES price.
If you choose not to participate, you can elect to be removed from the Program by calling DES at 844-351-7691. If you have questions or need additional information about Municipal Aggregation or DES, please visit the DES website for FAQs and community specific information. DES Customer Care is available 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday - Friday at 866-694-1262 or via email.
Please note that you also have the option to purchase electricity supply from a Retail Electric Supplier (RES) or from ComEd pursuant to Section 16-103 of the Public Utilities Act. Information about your options can be found at Illinois Commerce Commission website. You may request from the Illinois Power Agency, without charge, a list of all supply options available to you in a format that allows comparison of prices and products.
