It's Time to Put an End to ComEd's Unending Greed!Utilities

Illinoisans have paid over $2.6 billion in rates over 10 years for ComEd’s so-called Smart Grid. Now ComEd’s parent company wants more of your hard-earned money through new legislation that will leave you in the blind. 

Senate Bill 1585 will significantly raise your monthly rates through a new mandate called demand charges, which is a charge in addition to your current fixed monthly bill. 

ComEd wants you to pay more for the power you need, without giving you the ability to know exactly when your maximum energy usage takes place, or how it even occurs.

No utility in the U.S. is currently allowed to impose mandatory demand charges on residential
customers, and no legislature has ever approved such a mandate.

Do not let the General Assembly be the first state legislature to approve these unwarranted, unjustified charges that will significantly raise your monthly bill.   

 

Take action NOW! Sign our petition TODAY and tell your State Representative to vote NO on Senate Bill 1585.
