Both ComEd and mc2 purchase all of their energy wholesale from PJM Interconnection, which is a regional power grid that serves all or part of fourteen states in the northeastern United States. Both companies report the same mix of energy sources including the use of renewable and nuclear energy. The Village of Deerfield will use all of the Civic Contribution generated by your participation to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) that represent increased usage of renewable resources in Deerfield’s electricity consumption.
The Village of Deerfield may use some or all of the Civic Contribution generated by your participation to purchase RECs on behalf of the community. A REC represents the environmental benefit of 1 megawatt hour (MWh) of renewable energy that can be paired with electricity. The RECs will be from a renewable generation location located within the Midwest, including: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota or Wisconsin.
No, Community Solar and Aggregation are two separate Village programs; however, they are both operated by mc2. Deerfield also has a Community Solar program that allows participants to save 20% on their energy supply costs through net metering credits. You can learn more at www.northshorecommunitysolar.com. Community Solar participants need to stay on ComEd’s default supply to receive the best savings and will not be enrolled in the aggregation program.
