Highwood Municipal Electric Aggregation Program


On March 20, 2012, residents of Highwood approved a referendum authorizing community leaders to buy electricity in bulk from a supplier other than ComEd.

The City has selected FirstEnergy Solutions as our provider. Any contact for electric aggregation from anyone else is not affiliated with the City.

Residents receiving electricity from an alternate supplier are advised to review their contract to determine whether they are subject to an early termination fee before enrolling in the City's program. Residents can choose to enroll by contacting FirstEnergy directly.

Residents will continue to receive only one bill from ComEd and it will include the electric supply charges from FirstEnergy Services, L.L.C. ComEd will continue to charge for delivering electricity. But the cost of the supply portion of your ComEd bill will drop significantly. This is a result of Illinois’ deregulated energy market and new technologies that have lowered the cost of producing electricity.

The Illinois Commerce Commission offers more information about energy deregulation in Illinois and energy supply choices at www.pluginillinois.org.

For questions about your specific electric account, do not call City Hall; call the Highwood aggregation program supplier: FirstEnergy Solutions, L.L.C. at 888-651-5200.

To report an electrical outage, or for questions pertaining to your ComEd bill, call ComEd at 800-334-7661
