Potential energy scam targets Rockford residents, businesses


Beware of alternative energy suppliers pretending to work for the city. Rockford officials say they are not with the city's awarded energy supplier, and do not work on behalf of Rockford.

FirstEnergy Solutions is the city's official supplier. It contacts residents and businesses by mail, and will not go door-to-door or call customers directly. Also, FirstEnergy Solutions does not need to review copies of electric bills to sign up eligible customers.

If you're not already signed up with the City's aggregation supplier, the City of Rockford urges you carefully review terms of any agreement offered by an alternate supplier before signing up for service.

If you have questions or concerns, call Carrie Eklund at 815-987-5565.
