Electricity: The City of Mattoon accepted bids for electricity for our residents and small businesses on December 11, 2012. Aggregation is an opportunity for competitive pricing to help lower electric supply rates and provide budget stability. The Homefield Energy program for community aggregation will mean big savings for you and will keep the energy dollars right here in Illinois. The winning bid was 3.909¢/kW*hr from Homefield Energy (Ameren Energy Marketing).
Customers on Ameren’s Standard Rate, that do not “opt-out”, will automatically be switched to the new rate. There is no action required for these customers to get into the program.
Ameren’s Power Smart Customers should have been removed from the list of customers to be switched. However, these customers should complete and return the opt-out notice if they receive one.
Ameren’s All-Electric Customers were originally intended to be left out of our program. However, our pricing turned out so well that we can offer them significant year-round savings. All-Electric Customers will be automatically enrolled in our program unless they return an opt-out notice.
Customers with 3rd party power supply agreements can join our program if they wish. They need to review their cancellation clauses with their current supplier. The contact info for Homefield is CustCare@HomefieldEnergy.com, 866-694-1262. The contact numbers for Ameren are: 800-755-5000 residential, 800-232-2477 Commercial.
New customers, such as someone moving to the area or someone moving within the community, will automatically be included in the program unless they request otherwise when setting up their service.Phone/Internet: Consolidated Communications
