The power grid maintained by ComEd that serves your community cannot route specific power directly to your home. Those who purchase green power typically pay a premium to support green energy through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). RECs subsidize the cost of those companies that actually generate the green/renewable power.

If you have already switched to an Alternative Retail Electricity Supplier (ARES), you can still opt in to the program. You can enroll online by going to www.mc2energyservices.com/special (entering the promo code Deer Park) or by calling 1-888-808-4234 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Please note that you may also be subject to early termination fees or other restrictions by your current provider. You should check with your current provider to better understand any restrictions or policies that might apply.
You will continue to receive a single bill from ComEd on a monthly basis. “MC Squared Energy Services” will be designated as your supplier in the “Supply” section of your ComEd bill. ComEd will continue to bill you for distribution services and taxes. Payments should still be sent to ComEd at the address provided. And, there is no impact to Budget Billing, if applicable to your account.
At the end of the term, if the program is not renewed, all accounts served by mc2 will be returned to ComEd service.
No. There is no cost to terminate. However, you will be obligated to pay for services rendered under the contract until your service is terminated.
The ComEd “non-summer” rate from October 2019 to May 2020 is projected to be 7.216¢ per kWh. This is comprised of electricity supply and transmission services. In addition, the ComEd effective rate includes a Purchased Electricity Adjustment (PEA) that varies monthly. The same ComEd rate including the PEA charge or credit, will be charged to all participants in the Deer Park Community Aggregation, whether enrolled with mc2 or whether receiving supply service via ComEd.

Wind generation sites are the primary source of renewable green energy in the State of Illinois, followed by solar, hydro, and methane gas from landfills. Nuclear and natural gas are not considered renewable green resources for power generation.
When a power supplier sells a “green energy” product in the marketplace, that supplier is required to purchase and retire RECs to support their green products. The supplier must document and report those transactions to State and Federal agencies. The EPA states that enables you to claim that the electricity you use came from a renewable resource with low or zero emissions.
No. ComEd will continue to bill you for electric supply, delivery and taxes.

No. If you currently receive assistance via PIPP or LIHEAP, that status will not change and you can continue to get these benefits for your ComEd bill.
