Utility and Service Information

Electrical Service
 The contract Inverness has had with Dynergy Energy Services since February 2015 expires February 28, 2018. The village of Inverness is not negotiating with any other electric company at this time. Consequently, current Dynergy customers will roll back to ComEd for the "SUPPLY" portion of their monthly bill.

Dynergy's current "SUPPLY" price is 6.487 cents per kWh & ComEd's is 7.1 cents per kWh.
Other programs with ComEd are the "Budget Plan" and "Hourly Pricing Program."   
BUDGET PLAN - call 800-334-7661 for details
HOURLY PRICING PROGRAM - call 888-202-7787 for details.
There are several other companies in competition with Com Ed.



Sewer and Water

Sewer and water service to the Shires is provided by the Village of Palatine. The Village receives Lake Michigan water from the Northwest Water Commission via the City of Evanston. Water quality is monitored weekly by the Public Works department. To establish/or discontinue water service you should contact the Village of Palatine Finance Department at 847-359-9082. In order to provide enough time for Village Staff to obtain a final water meter reading, please contact the Village of Palatine at least one week prior to your move-in/move-out date. If activating service, Automatic Billing Payment information is available. Billing is done bi-monthly for residential customers. Bills may also be mailed to the Village Hall at 200 E. Wood Street, Palatine, IL. 60067, in person at the Finance counter in the Village Hall, or dropped off in one of two drop boxes. A walk-up drop box is located on the second floor of the Village Hall and a drive-up drop box is located adjacent to the Village Hall building near the Park District tennis courts.


Refuse Collection

Our refuse collection is done by Groot. The cost of this service is included in your monthly assessment. Refuse collection is every Thursday morning. We recycle so you will have two containers and Groot suggests you space them so their trucks can get at each without disturbing the other. Containers should be placed outside on driveways by 6:00 a.m. the day of pick-up, but no earlier than 7:00 p.m. from May through October and 5:00 p.m. from November through April the day before pick-up. Cans must be brought in on the day of pick-up. Separate guidelines apply to Lothian Shire residents. In the case of a holiday, refuse collection may be moved to the next day. Collection day change notifications are available by signing up with the Village of Inverness. They will text or call with changes in the collection day.
​Please check Bulletin Board for 2018 alternative collection dates.

Comcast

Comcast basic service is provided by the Shires Master Association. When electing your service, please be advised that Comcast has been selected for all of our residents whether or not it is used. Typically, the cost/savings to you of choosing Comcast will be approximately $26.00 per month off their normal rate.


Recycling

Recycling and disposal information for paint, motor oil, gasoline, or electronics and many more things can be found on the SWANCC (Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County) website.
