Today, more than 1 million Illinois residents have completed at least one billing cycle with a competitive electricity supplier for the first time in the state’s history. Last year, there were only about 90,000 residents that fit this category.
When taking a closer look at the different utility service areas, the amount of customers in each territory include:
— Approximately 713,000 ComEd residents, and
— Nearly 300,000 residents across Ameren’s 3 rate zones
The substantial climb, reported by the Illinois Commerce Commission, represents a milestone for electricity choice, innovation, and savings for the state of Illinois and is an example of how a competitive energy market can flourish when the right rules and structures are put in place.
If you have not yet taken advantage of electric choice for your home or business, Constellation has a number of options available. We provide 12 and 24 month options for customers in all utility service areas, with varying savings opportunities depending on the area. ComEd customers can also match 100% of their energy use with renewable energy with Constellation.
We look forward to continued progress in Illinois as more and more customers recognize the benefits of choosing their electricity provider. Stay tuned for updates!
Constellation recently named 96 new grant recipients through its Community Champions program, which is dedicated to honoring local nonprofit organizations in the 27 states Constellation services. Constellation and StarTex Power customers are able to apply for a grant up to $500 that benefits local non-profits with missions spanning education, youth development and environmental projects.
Twenty five percent of survey participants in FEMA’s 2011 survey said the cost of preparing for a hurricane and confusion surrounding hurricane preparedness meant they did not take as many steps to secure their home as they could have! At Constellation, we wanted to make the process of preparing for a hurricane easier.
