Champaign officials accept electric aggregation bid

Posted:
CHAMPAIGN - Champaign officials have accepted a bid for municipal electric aggregation from Homefield Energy.

City officials say the rate offered by Homefield Energy under this deal is lower than the default Ameren rate.  Qualifying Champaign residents will begin receiving "opt-out" letters from Homefield Energy on June 15.  Those residents will have until July 6 to decide whether they would like to opt out of the aggregation program.

Officials say at the end of the opt out period, all eligible residents and small businesses that did not opt out will be switched to the new aggregation electric rate.  Residents who do opt out will continue receiving service from Ameren.

If you have any questions regarding the aggregation, call the Champaign Public Works Department at (217) 403-4700.
