Chicago electric choice is providing lower energy prices and multiple choices for consumers living in the Commonwealth Edison electric territory, which includes Chicago and surrounding cities.
Now that the Illinois electric choice market is in full swing, electricity customers living in Chicago are becoming more aware of their options and their ability to save money by selecting a competitive electric rate to replace the ComEd price to compare. The Price to Compare represents the rate that customers pay who do no shop for cheap alternative electricity prices.
The ComEd price to compare includes the generation supply charge as well as the transmission charge. The Illinois Commerce Commission requires that all competitive electricity rates include everything that the ComEd price to compare includes. This provides an easier way for Chicago consumers to compare their electric rate choices.
To save money on your monthly electric bill all one has to do is choose an electric rate that is cheaper than the ComEd price to compare.
