Alternative Energy Supplier
A couple years ago, you could save decent money on your electric bill merely by switching to an alternate energy supplier, but Citizens Utility Board spokesman Jim Chilsen said not anymore. That is because those companies have started hiking rates, and ComEd has gotten out from under an expensive contract.
City officials and a utility watchdog group have requested a state investigation into some alternative power that may be tricking or confusing Chicago customers with their prices.
Ahead of an energy rate hike at ComEd next month, a utility watchdog group said it’s seen a dramatic increase in complaints about some of the practices of several alternative electricity companies.
ComEd customers will be getting socked with higher electric bills this summer.
Tens of thousands of northwest suburban residents who have been part of a program to shop around for the best electric rates were left confused after receiving letters telling them they were being switched back to ComEd.
The nearly 800,000 customers who switched electric companies have been seeing a savings of about $10 a month.
Don’t get scammed or slammed into signing up for alternative electric service you might not want.
One of dozens of alternative energy suppliers now fiercely competing for your business is a company with a bad track record the CBS 2 Investigators have been reporting on for years.
