Residential consumers in Illinois who purchase electricity from ComEd might be shocked with a 38 percent price increase per-kilowatt-hour on June 1. Other electricity suppliers could see increases due to power rates and delivery fees. Non-ComEd customers also could pay more, especially if their towns contracted with an alternative energy supplier.
By comparison, In early April, the City Council narrowly approved a 6 percent rate hike beginning May 1, followed by a 7 percent hike beginning May 1, 2015. Watch the discussion saved in the city’s archive of City Council meetings at www.naperville.il.us.
In Naperville, electric bills are expected to show an increase of about $5/month this fiscal year. Rates are set to up up another $6/month next spring. The City’s fiscal year runs May 1 through April 30.
