Long Grove Suspends Electric Aggregation Program.  The Village of Long Grove established an electric aggregation program in 2012 in which the average participating ratepayer has saved $635 to date for a cumulative Village savings of $1,367,000.  The current program expired in May 2017. The Village received competitive bids to extend the program; however, the Village could not obtain rates that would be guaranteed to be lower than the ComEd rate.  Residents do not need to take any action; they will automatically be moved back to ComEd.  If you have any questions regarding the program, you may call the Village’s consultant, NIMEC, at 800-727-3820 to leave your question and callback number. You will be contacted by NIMEC within 24 hours.  Further details are available here.
