Illinois Electricity & Natural Gas Choice

Illinois Electricity Choice

Illinois has deregulated the electricity market.  Commercial and residential customers are now allowed to choose a competitive electricity supplier to give the more competitive rates.  Customers can choose variable or fixed rates and save 10-30% off of prevailing market rates.  Residential and commercial customers of any size are eligible to choose their alternative energy supplier.  Commercial customers can choose different options to help them budget, such as fixed loads, variable or partial loads.

Illinois Natural Gas Choice

The natural gas markets in Illinois have also been deregulated. This allows for competitive pricing when choosing a natural gas supplier.  Customers have the option to reduce their natural gas bills by choosing an alternative supplier for the supply portion of their bill.  The local delivery company will still deliver the natural gas and be the contact for any customer service issues.  Competition is a great way to lower natural gas bills.


Illinois is currently deregulated for electricity and natural gas. Residential and business customers of all sizes have energy choice.
