The Village of Deerfield has approved a 36-month agreement with MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (mc2) to resume its electrical aggregation program. Participating residential and small business customers will not pay more than the ComEd monthly published rate while providing Deerfield an annual Civic Contribution of $60,000 that will be used to purchase 40,000 renewable energy credits that will offset the energy used by households and small businesses with 48.1% renewable sources.
How to Participate
You are not required to do anything to participate in the Electric Aggregation Program. Residents and small businesses will receive letters in the mail the week of August 9. Unless you act to the contrary, mc2 will automatically enroll you in the type of service that is most advantageous to our electricity aggregation program. There are no phone calls or door-to-door solicitations. Simply do nothing and you will be contributing to reducing the Village’s carbon footprint.
2022 Update - Letters Sent Regarding Change in Electricity Use
MC Squared sent letters to approximately 900 households and small businesses in mid-April of 2022 regarding a change in electricity usage. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause changing electricity consumption patterns as residents return to work and school. Changing consumption patterns can affect whether or not a given account can benefit the Village’s grant program. Additionally, customers move into new homes, condos, and apartments on a regular basis. Therefore, MC Squared Services periodically reviews accounts to ensure existing accounts are still a benefit to the grant program and to look for new accounts that can contribute.
No action is needed. All accounts enrolled in the North Shore Electric Aggregation program are charged an electricity supply rate equal to the monthly ComEd rate – in other words, they are not charged any more or less than ComEd customers. If you receive a letter stating that you will be automatically enrolled, it simply means that your account was selected as one that can benefit our civic grant described above. If you choose to opt out, please call the number on your letter. If you receive a letter stating that your account will be placed back on ComEd supply service, that will happen automatically; your supply rate will not increase or decrease due to the change. Due to changing consumption patterns, your account no longer benefits the grant program – thank you for your past participation.
If you have previously opted out of the electric aggregation program, you will not be resolicited.
