The Northern Illinois Municipal Power Agency contracted Utility Financial Solutions, LLC to provide a comparison of residential, commercial, and industrial monthly electric service bills. The communities of Batavia, Geneva, Naperville, Rochelle and St. Charles were compared along with Com Ed.
The rate schedules for all five municipally owned utilities were reviewed and those schedules that best fit the kWh and kW billing determinants surveyed for each class were selected.
The following charts summarize customer billing demands and are based on various combinations of energy and demand requirements.
