Electric Aggregation Program for Unincorporated Kane County

What is electric aggregation?
Section 1-92 of the Illinois Power Agency Act​ allows for the aggregation of electric load by municipalities and counties. This means a municipality or county can negotiate for the purchase of the combined electric supply of its residents and eligible small businesses.

Why is Kane County implementing an electric aggregation program?

Communities are choosing to pursue aggregation in order to help their residents and eligible small businesses save money by creating a combined customer group that has more buying power than individual residents and businesses. Over 700 communities in the State of Illinois have implemented electric aggregation programs, for a population approaching 10 million.

In April 2014, a majority of voters in unincorporated Kane County passed a referendum​ allowing the County to arrange for the supply of electricity for residential and small commercial customers through an electric aggregation program.
