What is electricity aggregation?
Public Act 096-0176 was signed into law on 8/10/2009, which allows municipalities to arrange for the provision of electricity to residential and small commercial retail customers by alternative electric suppliers (i.e. suppliers other than ComEd). Under this law, the Village of Deer Park may seek bids for the provision of aggregate electricity supply services to these customers.

Electricity aggregation combines the retail electric loads of customers, in this case, more than a thousand customers. By combining the electrical loads, the Village of Deer Park can leverage its buying power for Village residents and small businesses.
