NORTH AURORA – The village of North Aurora has decided to terminate its agreement with Integrys Energy Services Inc. for electric supply to residents and small commercial businesses and revert back to the default ComEd rates.

There will be no change or interruption in the delivery of service, only a change in the electricity supply charges on the ComEd bills for usage beginning with the meter read date after July 1, according to a news release from the village.

The village decided to make the change after the ComEd rate decreased to 5.511 cents per kilowatt hours this month and the Integrys rate provided to residents of North Aurora increased from 5.75 cents per kilowatt hours to 5.952 cents per kilowatt hours this month.

Residents and small commercial businesses who are part of the village’s electric aggregation currently being served by Integrys Energy Services, Inc. will receive a letter in the mail from Integrys notifying them of the change and the option to remain with Integrys if they choose through the end of the agreement in October.

ComEd will be sending a notice as well.

The village has begun the process of soliciting bids for a new electricity supplier. In the meantime, residential supply will be served by ComEd for the next couple of months.

“Any decision regarding a switch to a new supplier will be based on the most timely and accurate information available at the time, in the best interests of our North Aurora residents,” Village President Dale Berman said in the release.
