Morris plugs in with FirstEnergy for lower electricity rates
Starting at the beginning of next year, Morris residents will see a 30-percent savings on the energy portions of their electric bills thanks to the city's new Electrical Aggregation Opt-Out Program.
The city entered into a contract last week with FirstEnergy, Mayor Richard Kopczick said at Monday's regular council meeting. FirstEnergy offered the lowest bid for the city's energy supply. It will provide residents energy for 5.43 cents per kilowatt hour. Currently with ComEd, the rate is 7.76 cents per kilowatt hour. Commercial businesses will receive a 5.28-cents-per-kilowatt hour rate.
The city will have the rate locked from January 2012 to September 2013. Residents will start seeing the savings on their February bills, Kopczick said. At the end of the contract, the city will go for bid again.
