OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill., Aug. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Nordic Energy Services, LLC, an Illinois-based leading alternative energy supplier serving Illinois and NW Indiana, proudly announces a new three-year partnership with the Village of Erie. Nordic Energy Services will be the electricity provider of choice for households and businesses within the community.
"Erie along with many other Illinois municipalities are leveraging their electricity providers to receive better rates and provide cost savings to their town," said James Deering, President of Nordic Energy Services. "The Village of Erie was one of the first municipalities to decide on a new energy supplier and we look forward to supporting many others in the near future."
Under the agreement, Nordic Energy Services provides the Village of Erie a fixed price on electricity for the three-year period. Residents and businesses will receive significant savings over their existing utility rate.
The Village of Erie has established an "opt-out" aggregation program that automatically enrolls residents and businesses to receive the new fixed rate. Residents or businesses currently with another provider other than the utility will not be enrolled. Residents and businesses will be given the opportunity to "opt-out" of the program before it starts if they so desire.
"Switching electric providers is completely seamless and there will be no service interruption. ComEd will continue to be responsible for the delivery of electricity, maintenance of the electric system and will respond to power outages," said Mike Mudge, consultant for the Village of Erie. "Erie residents and businesses will receive one electric bill per month from ComEd that reflects their new Nordic Energy rate."
