Electrical Aggregation

Following the passage of a voter referendum, the Village contracted to procure lower-cost electric supply for residents and small businesses via an Electric Aggregation Program in 2012. Dynegy Energy Services (DES) was chosen by the Village of Riverside as the retail electric supplier for the 2015-2017 aggregation program and was again the low bidder for the 2017-2018 aggregation program. Following a competitive bid process, Dynegy was again selected as supplier for the term October 2018 to October 2020. Dynegy is an independent seller of power and energy service
and is certified as an Alternative Retail Electricity Supplier by the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC Docket No. 14-0336).

Residents will receive a letter from Dynegy in August 2018 confirming that Dynegy has again been selected as the electrical supplier for the Village of Riverside Electric Aggregation program.  Those who do not wish to participate in the program must Opt Out by August 24, 2018.  View a copy of the letter here.
