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.

 

Applications Being Accepted for General Utility Worker

 

The City of Darien is currently accepting applications for the position of General Utility 3 in the Streets Division of the Municipal Services Department.  The job ad and application can be found on the City of Darien website under “Employment.”
