Beware of door to door electrical aggregation sales pitch

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Be wary of a door to door sales pitch claiming to be a part Quincy's electrical aggregation program.

The city is working with the consultant company SIMEC to solicit bids from providers to lower energy costs for residents.

But several people have reported salesmen coming to their house telling them they need to sign up for the program now.

"We will not be knocking on anybody's door. The decision has already been made and people are already in the pool to get lower prices once we get the bids back. So there will be no contact by anyone for people in the city of Quincy. In fact, there won't be contact by anyone if people decide to opt out, they will get a letter," said SIMEC Regulatory Advisor Reg Ankrom.

Quincy police say the Constellation Energy salesmen have the necessary credentials to go door to door and they are a legit business.

A Constellation spokesman says no complaints have been called into the company, but salesmen should not be claiming to be with the city of Quincy.
