Community > Electricity Supplier - Constellation Energy Resources

This document is available to view in PDF format. Changes to Electric Bill Effective June 2016

The Village’s current aggregation contract with Constellation ends in May of 2017. However, as a result of the regulatory change, the Village’s aggregation rate will change from $6.621 cents per kWh to $7.152 cents per kWh effective with the June 2016 meter read (to be first seen on your July ComEd bill). ComEd releases their new annual rate at the end of May. It is very possible that the Village’s aggregation rate will be above the ComEd rate beginning in June. Based on an average home in the aggregation program, the Village estimates the price increase amounts to approximately $3 monthly per the average home.

The Village urges aggregation participants to stay informed about electric supply options whether through ComEd or other suppliers through Plug In Illinois (pluginillinois.org). Customers who wish to leave the Village’s aggregation program can do so by contacting Constellation directly at 1-877-585-3435. There are NO early termination fees.

In 2012, Village of Wheeling voters approved a referendum authorizing the Village to engage in an electric aggregation program to provide reduced rates for eligible residents and small business customers.
The Village partnered with the Villages of Palatine, Buffalo Grove, Arlington Heights, Lincolnshire, Vernon Hills, and Long Grove to form the Northwest Consortium in order to combine our purchasing efforts and obtain better pricing.

Since the inception of the Consortium’s electric aggregation program, the Consortium has saved participating residents and small business customers a cumulative total of $27.3 million. The Village of Wheeling has alone saved our residents and small customers $2.8 million. This has resulted in savings of $256 to the average sized residential account.

Additionally, the Village opted to purchase renewal energy credits as part of the total pricing option, which has equated to a reduction of CO2 emissions by 145,750 tons.
