Information on Electric Aggregation vs. Individual Contracts
Residents have reported that electricity marketers are actively engaged in door-to-door and telephone campaigns in THE VILLAGE OF PALESTINE. 
Our residents should be aware that the electric aggregation program sponsored by the city has a rate of 3.909 cents per kilowatt hour. This rate is lower than residents will pay under the terms of individual contracts currently being offered by door-to-door solicitors or telemarketers. 
In THE VILLAGE OF PALESTINE aggregation program, residents are not required to sign a contract at all, and will not be called or visited by a salesperson.
Residents in our community are often confused by the actions of marketers, who typically present savings compared to the Ameren Illinois rates.  Our community’s electric contract price is already lower than Ameren’s rates.  Further, our program’s rates do not have variable, hidden or “pass through” charges.  Residents should be certain to review all contract terms, ask about additional charges and not feel pressured to take action right away.  If you are in a new residential electric account, or uncertain if you are enrolled in the community aggregation program, please contact our supplier:

Homefield Energy
866.694.1262 - HomefieldCustCare@Dynegy.com
or Call our Village of Palestine municipal office 586-2777 (ask for Mayor Pat)
or call Mayor Pat at home. 
STAY INFORMED! 
We are always glad to discuss this with you at ANY TIME.
