The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced its Spring 2020 rankings on April 27. The Village of Clarendon Hills has lined up as #7 on the list of Green Power Partner communities in terms of percentage Green Power versus total power consumed.
The EPA designation is in recognition of the Village’s dedication to using 100% Renewable Energy for its Residential and Small Business Electric Aggregation program. 68.1% of the Village’s entire electrical consumption is derived from Renewable Energy Certificates from Midwest wind generation.
Participating residents pay exactly the ComEd supply rate with zero premium for the Green Energy.
In more good news, the new annualized ComEd supply rate was announced yesterday. The ComEd base rate will decline from its current 7.175¢ per kWh to 6.842¢ beginning June 1, 2020.
The high EPA ranking combined with lower power costs are all good news for Village residents. View this 4-minute video which shows how Renewable Energy works: www.tinyurl.com/GreenEPA.
“We’re happy about supporting clean energy generation,” said Clarendon Hills Assistant to the Village Manager Zachery Creer. “It’s a smart thing for the environment, and we were pleased to negotiate a contract to bring Green Energy to Clarendon Hills for no additional cost to our residents.”
