To the mayor: Will the utility companies who will participate Electrical Aggregation allow customers to participate in time of use pricing and use smart meters to help monitor and control energy use? My concern is that using an aggregator will prevent us from using the Smart Grid technology that will allow us to control our own use and tailor it to pricing that is favorable.

@fred: Thanks for the question! Joe Vince Local Editor, Frankfort

fred, The Citizens Utility Board states that all alternative electricity suppliers currently offer only fixed pricing to residential customers. None currently offers what is commonly called real time pricing. You will need to remain with ComEd to receive this type of pricing.

Thank you Mayor. I am currently on real time pricing from ComEd and have similar savings that the electrical aggregation video showed which is why I asked the question. I appreciate your answer.
