Village warns residents, businesses of unlawful solicitation

LOMBARD – The village of Lombard is reminding residents and the local business community to beware of direct calls, mailing and door-to-door marketing related to the sale of electricity.

The village does not send people door to door or have them call residents to sign up for energy suppliers. Door-to-door marketing requires a solicitor's permit.

The village board last month decided to switch its energy supplier back to Com Ed after the energy company offered lower rates than other bidders. Residents have the option to chose a different supplier but should always initiate first contact with the provider to eliminate the chance of a potential scam.

For more information on electric options and price comparisons, visit pluginillinois.org. All information regarding the Electric Aggregation Program and the village's recent switch back to Com Ed is available at www.villageoflombard.org/electric.
