By Daily Herald report

Mount Prospect officials have asked residents to be wary of door-to-door and phone solicitors trying to convince people to switch from the village's aggregate electricity supplier to an alternative supplier.

The police department and village hall staff have received reports that some electricity suppliers are using "suspicious or coercive tactics," according to a news release sent Tuesday.

In some cases, according to the village, residents have been asked to provide a copy of their current energy bill in order to copy personal information from the bill, sometimes leading to an unapproved transfer of energy providers.

Village officials say their group buying power for the purchase of competitively priced electricity from an alternative retail electric supplier is the best rate available to residents.
