Nearly 6,000 DeKalb Customers To Recieve Electric Bill Refunds In October

Sep 15, 2016

 Homefield Energy will offer around $87,000 in refunds to  5,900 customers who were overbilled.  



The Daily Chronicle reports an aggregation contract approved by the city council was supposed to lower rates by 12.9%. beginning in July.  However, the company didn’t enter the change into their system.  As a result, affected residents were billed at the old rate of 7.237 cents per kilowatt hour in July and August, rather than 6.307 cents per kilowatt hour.    


The bills were issued by ComEd, but Homefield supplies the discounted electricity to certain residential and commercial customers.  Refunds are likely to be mailed out in October.
