McHenry library to explain electric competition

McHENRY – The McHenry Public Library will host a program Tuesday called “Electric Competition – What ComEd Customers Should Know.”

In northern Illinois, consumers can choose ComEd, the regulated utility, to supply power, or go with alternative suppliers.

If consumers buy only electricity from an alternative company, ComEd still will bill to deliver the electricity to the home. 

What are the other options? Will they you save money? What should consumers look for in fine print? These are among questions that will be answered by a representative of the Citizens Utility Board.

This program begins at 7 p.m. and lasts an hour. It is free but requires registration either in person at the library at 809 N. Front St. (Route 31), online at or by calling 815-385-0036.
