Following the passage of a March 2012 referendum, the Village of Deer Park contracted to procure electric supply in bulk for residents and small businesses. The Village recently sought competitive bids and renewed the program for a 12-month term with Dynegy Energy, a power generator located in Southern Illinois. The new fixed rate is 6.256¢ per kWh for the term October 2016 to October 2017, an 8% decline versus the current program rate.
The default ComEd rate to compare is established by the Illinois Power Agency and will next reset in October to 6.31¢ per kWh. That rate will again be reset in June 2017 and may rise another ½¢ due to an expected increase in regulated capacity charges.
For specific questions about your own electric account, do not call VIllage Hall; call the Village of Deer Park's aggregation program supplies: Dynegy at 844-351-7691.
