Aurora Electric Aggregate Program
First Energy Solutions
First Energy Solutions has been selected to provide you with savings on your electric generation. There is no cost for enrollment, you will not be charged a switching fee, and you do not need to do anything to participate. The program provides you a 6% savings off the utility's price to compare. This program will remain in effect until April 2018. Once in the program there is a $25 early termination fee should you want to terminate this program.
How To Estimate Program Savings
Locate your Price to Compare on your electric bill. Divide your Price to Compare by 100, then multiply by 0.06 (6%) to determine your savings per kWh. Multiply that number by your total monthly usage. The final number is how much you can expect to save each month you use the same amount of electricity.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is my community able to choose a certified electric generation supplier on my behalf?
Residents voted to allow the community to contract for an electric generation supplier on their behalf.
How will I know if I can save money under the electric governmental aggregation program? The price you pay for electric generation supply is guaranteed to be lower because you'll always receive the percent discount for your electric generation
If I join this program, who will deliver my power, read my meter and respond to emergencies, such as power outages?
Your electric utility will be responsible for the delivery of power to your home or business. Since your electric utility still owns the wires and poles that deliver power to you, it will continue to read your meter and restore power after an outage.
Is your price for residential power fixed, or does it vary?
In this program, the discount you will receive each month does not change. But because the actual price per kWh charged by the utility may change each month (based on the season and your usage), the price per kWh from FirstEnergy Solutions will also change each month.
Can I opt out of the program at a later date? Yes, but you will be subject to the early termination fee from FirstEnergy Solutions if you cancel for any other reason but moving. However, you will be sent a notice at least every 3 years asking if you wish to remain in the program. At that point, you may opt out at no cost.
If I join the aggregation, can I stay on budget billing?
Yes, you can remain on budget billing; however, only your charges from the utility will continue to be budgeted. Your charges from FirstEnergy Solutions will not be budgeted - you pay the full amount each month.
