SG gets cheaper electricity

New program allows residents to choose electricity provider
SUGAR GROVE—The village of Sugar Grove chose Direct Energy as the electricity provider of choice for residents and small businesses in the community through September 2013 billing cycles.

Direct Energy works with communities to supply electricity at a competitive fixed price for a defined time period.

Electricity consumers in Sugar Grove will pay 5.99 cents per kilowatt hour (not including utility charges and taxes) for the billing period October 2011 through September 2013. Seniors aged 65 and over qualify for a discounted price of 5.89 cents per kilowatt hour.

Residents will continue to send just one payment to ComEd for their charges and Direct Energy’s charges. ComEd will continue to provide emergency and maintenance service.

All residents will automatically be enrolled in the standard price. Anyone interested in renewable wind energy or seniors who want to enroll in the reduced rate, or anyone with questions, can call Direct Energy at (866) 760-6040 to enroll or learn more.
