Electric Aggregation

PRESS RELEASE

The Township initiated an electric aggregation program for all residents in unincorporated Belvidere Township in early 2013. The program enables the Township to conduct a competitive bid to procure power for its residents’ home electric bills.


Starting in January 2013, the Township negotiated a power rate of 5.229 cents. This rate continues to be significantly lower than the rate residents would have received, had they remained with Commonwealth Edison. The average Township household has saved $275 from the program’s lower power rate.


The program has achieved savings for the entire Township of $450,000.


Recently, the Township went to bid to renew the program. Unfortunately, rates have risen significantly since the inception of the program in early 2013. The current ComEd rate (energy plus transmission) is 7.43 cents.


The Township has accepted a fixed rate of 7.14 cents for 36 months. The program features no early termination fee, so residents are able to leave the program at no expense should they choose to do so.


The Township will be mailing letters out to the program’s participants explaining the new rate in the next few weeks.

Thanks to the C.E.R.T. group and the Flaming Monkeys for all the help.

Highway Commissioner, Richard Lee

Belvidere Township is dedicated to doing the best job of snow removal possible, within the restrains of reasonable cost. By its nature, there will always be someone who is plowed first or last. We operate on routes designed to best utilize our equipment and to give the fastest economic service possible. Conditions such as: when snow starts and stops, how wet or deep, and or how windy affect the timing, method and success of snow removal. There are times when it is impossible to make progress and we may have to delay starting or pull off the road. And there are times and conditions where we may only plow to keep roads open. Your understanding and cooperation is very important to our efforts. With the best planning and efforts, there are still things that go wrong. If you need to report special problems, please call 815-544-2029 and leave a message. Snow crews can operate all hours of the night, so patience and understanding can go a long way.
