On December 11, 2012, the Niles Board of Trustees an approved a resolution to authorize a referendum regarding municipal electrical aggregation.
Residents were asked if the Village of Niles should have the authority to arrange for the supply of electricity for its residential and small commercial retail customers who have not opted out of such program. The purpose of this program is to combine (aggregate) electricity service for the residents and small businesses in Niles in an attempt to save money on utility bills.
On April 9, 2013, a referendum was approved by residents to allow the Village of Niles to create an opt-out municipal electric aggregation program for eligible residential and small business customers (less than 15,000 kilowatts per year).
On April 25, 2017, the Village of Niles conducted an online auction for electric suppliers and determined that Eligo Energy offered the most competitive rate, which is more favorable than the current ComEd rate to compare (ComEd rate to compare is $0.07004 starting June 1, 2017). The new rate for the Village of Niles electrical aggregation program will be in effect from June 1, 2017 until August 31, 2018.
Eligo Energy offered an electricity supply rate of $0.0686 per kilowatt hour.
