The sign-up deadline for the city of Joliet’s opt-in electric aggregation program with FirstEnergy Solutions has been extended to Jan. 31.
The city partnered with the Will County Governmental League to join 21 other municipalities in purchasing electricity from FirstEnergy Solutions at a rate that will be 33 percent less than the current rate assessed residential and small business customers.
There are three ways to enroll in the program: by mail, by phone or online.
Mail the reply portion of the letter to FirstEnergy by Jan. 31, call 877-635-0494 or visit www.fes.com/joliet.
Have your most current electric bill handy if you call. You will need your ComEd account number to respond either by phone or by mail or Internet link.
Not all ComEd accounts will be eligible. Restrictions may apply, particularly for business accounts. Non-residential customers must have an annual electrical demand not exceeding 15,000 kilowatt hours to be eligible.
Visit www.fes.com/joliet for a direct online opt-in opportunity. This is a specific Joliet-only link, so no offer code is required on the form; just fill it out and continue through the process and await your email confirmation.
