Options for Electricity Service

Alternative Retail Energy Supplier

As of 2011, Illinois consumers may choose from a variety of Electricity Suppliers rather than being forced to buy their electricity from ComEd. ComEd is still responsible for delivering the electricity and maintaining the wiring and other infrastructure. Thus, your delivery charges and taxes will remain the same. As a result, you may be able to achieve some savings on your electricity bill.

There are many different electricity suppliers all competing for your business. You can visit the Illinois Commerce Commission’s Plug In lllinois site to better understand your options. In addition, the Citizen Utility Board offers information including updated terms and rates from the various Electricity Supply Vendors. Please be aware of any monthly fees, contract length, and early termination fees, before signing up with any of the suppliers.
