If you or a family member or friend in northeastern Illinois has received mail from us in the past month promoting ways to save on electricity, you may want to know more about Constellation Energy. You may also want to know more about why you are able to save on electricity and may even find yourself asking, “Is this too good to be true?”
Fortunately, this is a true story. It began more than a decade ago in the ComEd area when Constellation Energy began serving businesses and public sector customers with alternative retail electricity supply. Today, we serve more than 9,000 hospitals, schools, municipalities, restaurants, manufacturers, retail stores, and more – our customers include Fortune Fish Company, General Iron Industries, and Resurrection Health Care, to name a few.
We’re thrilled to build on our tradition in the ComEd area by now serving residential customers. Our offers have caught the attention of many local and national news sources, including the Chicago Sun-Times, FOX WFLD TV-32, Southtown Star, Lawndale News, and more.
If you have a few minutes, watch this recent WGN-TV news clip that explains electricity competition, including a guest appearance from David Fein, vice president of energy policy at Constellation Energy.

ComEd’s rates are subject to change and therefore we cannot guarantee savings over the full term of our price plans. Our price does not include any taxes, utility distribution charges or other utility fees, charges or credits. Estimated savings are based on ComEd’s BES residential (non-electric space heating) rate as in effect on February 15, 2011, which includes an Electricity Supply Charge of 7.6 cents and a Transmission Services Charge of 0.73 cents. ComEd also invoices its customers for Purchase Electricity Adjustment (PEA) costs in the form of monthly varying charges or credits. We excluded the PEA costs from our calculation, as ideally they will net each other out over each June – May supply period. For customers on ComEd’s BES residential (electric space heat) rate savings will be lower. Also, customers that are currently net metered need to contact us prior to enrollment to determine eligibility. Savings estimations are based on publicly available market information as of January 1, 2011. For more information on our price comparison visit home.constellation.com.
Whatever your energy needs, we've got a plan for you
When you get your electric bill for your small business, you’ll see two big charges: one for demand and one for consumption. When you understand what each of these are, you can make small changes in how you’re using electricity in your business that can bring down your overall bill.
What is smart gardening, exactly? If you’re new to the term, it might be because it’s a relatively new idea.
