The Kankakee Mayor claims your ComEd bill decreased 48% (read it here) because of her leadership.
Any fourth grader can tell you the 48% math isn’t possible. On average, your total bill for the same kilowatt hours will run about 25-35 percent less.

Last fall, the City of Kankakee changed to a different electricity supplier, FirstEnergy Solutions.
I asked around: Have you saved money on your electricity? Most answered Yes. 50 percent? Two were very clear: “That can’t be, only the electricity cost is lower, the rest of the bill is the same,” much less than 50% savings.
If you believe I’m wrong, you’re welcome to post some math.
It’s a good program, why overinflate the savings?
Stupidity or something worse?
