Electrical Aggregation Program

Northbrook News

Earlier this summer, the Village of Northbrook approved a 36-month agreement with MC Squared Energy Services, LLC (mc2) to administer our electrical aggregation program. The savings brought on by this program will be provided to the Village and go towards sustainability initiatives, including items from our recently approved Climate Action Plan such as planting more trees and installing electric vehicle charging stations. The best part? There is no cost to residents!

This program is the result of Northbrook’s membership in the North Shore Electricity Aggregation Consortium. Northbrook, along with five other North Shore communities, will start the state’s largest “price match” electricity aggregation program this October. MC Squared was selected by the Consortium as its energy provider in early 2021 and is the only vendor endorsed by the Village.

This week, residents will receive a letter about the program customized to their specific electricity account information. Depending on your current electric service with ComEd, you may receive a different letter than your neighbors that offers the option to either opt-in to the program or to opt-out of the program. Per your letter, MC Squared will automatically enroll you in the type of service that is most advantageous to our electricity aggregation program. There are no fees/charges to opt-in or to opt-out.

Whether you choose to participate or not, you will continue to pay the same ComEd rate. If you choose to participate, aggregation is seamless for the customer! ComEd continues to be responsible for billing, electricity delivery, and customer service. Payments will still be sent to ComEd, and how you pay your bill will not change. The only difference on your bill is “MC Squared Energy Services” will be designated as your supplier in the “Supply” section. For more details on the program, visit the Village's website (link corrected).

Two public hearings were held in April to discuss the program. The Village Board of Trustees approved the resolution at the July 27 meeting. Didn’t hear about it? Stay informed on what the Board is discussing by signing up to receive agendas! Follow the instructions here.
