Tell IL legislators to pull the plug on energy scams

Too often so-called alternative energy suppliers sway consumers with promises of special savings if they make a switch in their gas or electric supplier.

  • They don’t tell you that you actually may end up paying more on your electric or gas bill than before.
  • They don’t say that the promises of “savings” or “freebies” are not worth the real cost.  
  • They don’t let you know that you get locked in a contract that automatically renews.

This legislation will force these companies to show the real costs of making a switch and stop the surprise renewals. 

Send a message to your state representative and ask them to support Senate Bill 651 by signing on as a sponsor.
