Electric Aggregation in the Village of Peoria Heights
Our electric aggregation program was recently extended through June, 2019 and has a fixed rate of $0.06007 per kilowatt-hour. This rate became effective on your June or July 2016 Ameren bill. Eligible residents and small businesses received an OPT-OUT notice in the mail during the month of April 2016. If you want to participate in this group rate, you do not need to do anything—you will be automatically enrolled. There is NO CONTRACT to sign and NO ENROLLMENT FEE. This rate is lower than prices currently being offered by door-to-door solicitors or telemarketers. In our community’s aggregation program, residents are not required to sign a contract at all, and will not be called or visited by a salesperson.

Residents are often confused by the actions of marketers, who typically present savings compared to the Ameren Illinois rates. Our community’s electric contract price is already lower than Ameren’s rates. It was locked in at a lower point in the market last fall. Market prices have increased in the past several months, but our program is protected from this market volatility and the price is guaranteed for 2 years. Further, our program’s rates do not have variable, hidden or “pass through” charges. If you are approached by an electric marketer, it IS NOT part of our community’ aggregation program. Be certain to review all contract terms, ask about additional charges and do not feel pressured to take action right away. If you are a new residential electric customer, or uncertain if you are enrolled in the community aggregation program, please contact our supplier, Homefield Energy:
