Village of Godfrey renews electrical aggregation program with Homefield EnergyAfter a thorough bidding / selection process, the Village of Godfrey will again contract with Homefield Energy, to be their electrical aggregation partner for the contract term of June, 2014 – June, 2016. Homefield Energy guarantees a rate of $0.04646 per kWh (kilo Watt hour) effective as of the June 2014 billing cycle. You will receive a renewal notice in the mail the week of April 15, 2014. To remain with Homefield DO NOTHING! If a resident wishes to remain with, or return to, Ameren, complete the opt-out card in the afore mentioned mailing, and complete it by May 2, 2014.
Unlike Ameren and/or other electric energy providers, Homefield Energy’s rate of $ 0.046 is a constant rate throughout the contract period (June 2014 – June 2016). There will be NO increase or variable rate during summer or high-use months. Electric energy will continue to be DELIVERED to homes by Ameren Illinois. Gas & Electric bills will continue to come from Ameren Illinois. Half-way down the 2nd page of your Ameren Illinois bill, you will see the breakdown of your ELECTRIC charges. This is how you will know you are with Homefield Energy or any other electric provider.
More information about the Godfrey Electric Aggregate program can be found here. For questions about your electric energy, call Homefield Energy at (866) 694-1262.
