AKRON, Ohio, May 23, 2013 -- Aurora Township, Illinois, selected FirstEnergy Solutions to supply its residents and small businesses with 100 percent green power for a 16-month term. Through this program, participants will receive a low fixed price of 4.804 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) on 100 percent green electric generation.
"We're pleased to be implementing this electric aggregation program for our community," said Christina Campos, Aurora Township Supervisor. "Not only are we able to provide valuable savings to the residents and small businesses in Aurora Township, we're also offering peace of mind. If ComEd's electric generation rate falls below the price offered through the aggregation program, FirstEnergy Solutions can match it so there is no risk in participating."
