Warren Township High School stands to collect $50 for each new customer who signs up for a minimum of about 90 days with an electricity provider that’ll beat ComEd’s rate at least until May. The power offer appears to be breaking new ground at the elementary or high school level. University of Illinois has had a similar program since April 2011.
