Municipal Electric Aggregation Update - First Energy Solutions Letter

FirstEnergy Solutions has been the Village of Hawthorn Woods’ electric aggregation program supplier since 2013. FirstEnergy Solutions is required to send an annual notice to residents who are enrolled in the optional 100% renewable or “green” energy program. The purpose of this letter is to confirm the use of wind power for their power generation. Unfortunately, this letter was also mistakenly sent to all Village residents, including the majority of whom are enrolled in the “traditional” program at the rate of 6.58¢ per kWh.

Since most Village residents received this letter in error, FirstEnergy sincerely regrets and apologizes for their mistake.

The current Hawthorn Woods fixed rate is 6.58¢ per kWh and will remain unchanged until February 2020. The current ComEd rate for residents who are not enrolled in our municipal plan is 7.2¢ per kWh and will rise to an estimated 7.8¢ or higher on June 1, 2018. Residents who have participated in the Village’s program since inception have saved nearly $800 per household on power costs for a cumulative Village-wide savings approaching $1.6 million.

If you have questions, or need additional information, please contact Kristin Kazenas kkazenas@vhw.org 847-847-3590.
