Who allowed the government to do this?
Each community passed a referendum in April or November of 2012 allowing the municipality to establish an aggregation program.
Do I have to opt-out every time?
Yes. The way that the aggregation programs are established all eligible residents, including those who have opted out in the past, receive the letters and are re-enrolled.
Why do I have to provide my account number?
ComEd supplies the account numbers, via the requests from the communities, to the suppliers so that the winning supplier can mail out the letters and enroll all the eligible customers. In order to opt-out of the program they need the account number to remove the list of enrolled customers.
