Eligible accounts must meet all of these criteria to receive an Opt-Out Letter:
  • Those on the utilities default/standard supply rate and not shopping with an alternate supplier.
  • Customers on an electric cooperative are not eligible for the aggregation.
  • Those not on "Percentage of Income" (PIPP) plan with the utility.
  • Commercial accounts that use less than 700,000 kWh annually and not considered a "mercantile" account.
  • Not on the "Do Not Aggregate" list with the PUCO.
If an account does not meet the above criteria, they will not receive an opt-out letter and would not be included in the aggregation program.

Door-to-door solicitors are everywhere and the phone calls to buy energy seem to never end. Don't be fooled by these offers. The supplier of the aggregation will never come to your door! Some salespeople may display a solicitor's permit form or official looking badge. THE PERMIT IS NOT AN ENDORSEMENT BY THE COMMUNITY. and the badge may be misleading. They may claim they work with the utility or XYZ Energy company and offer rates far below anything you presently are receiving. PLEASE DO NOT SHOW THEM YOUR ENERGY BILL. Also, beware of robo-calls and phone solicitors claiming that "your utility account has been flagged for review." This is also a scam by an unethical broker or supplier designed to mislead you.

Constellation New Energy has been chosen as the new supplier of energy for the Village of Lincoln Heights. They will be sending this letter on or after May 28 with the opt out period ending on June 18. This is the only version of solicitation that Constellation New Energy will be engaging in. All other forms of solicitation (door-to-door, robo-calls and phone solicitation) are to NOT BE ENGAGED with. Please be aware of this as we continue to move through the phases of the Energy Aggregation process.

If you have questions, don't hesitate to close the door on the scammers and call your local officials.
