COMED West Central Reliability Project
ComEd has proposed a West Central Reliability Project, which includes the installation of a new 138kV electric line from its Bartlett substation to its substation in Itasca. The village is aware of the project and has been involved in working with a coalition of local government officials to discuss the project with Com Ed. Concerns initially identified by the village include the visual appearance of the lines and poles, the potential impact on the airspace around the Schaumburg Airport, and the potential impact on fireworks at Boomers Stadium.

Electrical Aggregation Program
The village recently approved a new agreement with Dynegy Inc. for the electrical aggregation program which will run from December 2018 through December 2021 at a rate of 7.487 cents per kWh. There is no cost for enrollment and you will not be charged a switching fee.

Utility Box Problems

If you have one of these types of boxes in your yard and it is making an unusual noise, sparking, leaning, sinking, or experiencing other problems you should call ComEd at 1-800-EDISON-1 (1-800-334-7661).

To help expedite problems with utility boxes in your yard, it is best to try and identify which utility company owns the box and work directly with that Company to set up a work order ticket to fix the problem. View more about identifying the type of utility box at your home.
