Darien Receives Lowest Electric Rates in Illinois
Darien voters authorized the City to negotiate electric supply
rates on the behalf of residents. We are proud to announce
our recent bid provides for the lowest rates in the State of
Illinois, at 4.54 per kWh for two years, when compared with the
current ComEd rate of 7.73 per kWh. These savings would
save the average resident approximately $250 per year, even as
the ComEd rate drops to around 7.00 per kWh in June.
Residents will be receiving notices in the mail over the next
month allowing them to opt-out of the program if they so choose.
