Municipal Electric Aggregation
Previously, voters passed a referendum authorizing the City of Jacksonville to seek competitive electricity rates for eligible residential and small commercial retail customers by an "opt-out" electric aggregation program. Homefield Energy was chosen as the retail electric supplier for the current program, which ends on your scheduled meter read date in June. After a thorough bid process, Homefield Energy was again selected as the supplier for a contract term of June 2016 to June 2019. Homefield Energy is an independent seller of power and energy service and is certified as an Alternative Retail Electricity Supplier by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC Docket No. 14-0015).
As an eligible participant, your account will be automatically enrolled in the program unless you choose to opt-out.
- There is no enrollment or switching fee
- Your new price of $0.06007 per kWh which goes into effect June 2016 and is guaranteed until June 2019.
- This is a firm fixed all inclusive rate that will not change through this term.
You will continue to receive one monthly bill from Ameren Illinois. You will still be eligible for the same programs you are eligible for now through the utility, such as Budget Billing, payment agreements and energy efficiency programs. The only change will be in the Electric Supply price on your Ameren Illinois bill (sample).
If you are a current participant in the municipal aggregation program and wish to continue in the program, no further action on your part is required. If you are new to the program, once your account is enrolled, you will receive a confirmation letter from Ameren Illinois confirming your "switch" to Homefield Energy. Approximately 30 to 45 days after enrollment you will receive your first bill with your new Homefield Energy price.
If you choose not to participate, you can elect to be removed from the Program by completing and returning the Opt-Out card, or you may opt out of the program at any time by calling 866-694-1262 or emailing Homefield Energy at Homefield Energy Customer Care.
Please be advised you also have the option to purchase electricity supply from a Retail Electric Supplier (RES) or from Ameren Illinois pursuant to Section 16-103 of the Public Utilities Act. Information about your options can be found at Illinois Commerce Commission and Ameren Illinois. You may request from the Illinois Power Agency, without charge, a list of all supply options available to you in a format that allows comparison of prices and products.
