Commonwealth Edison Company, more commonly known as ComEd, is one of the country’s largest electricity utilities. Almost 4 million customers in Illinois are serviced by them, which accounts for around 70% of the residents and businesses. ComEd is in the electricity delivery business. This means that their primary responsibility is for the delivery of power to homes and businesses throughout Chicago and Suburbs like, Joliet, Alsip, Kankakee, Carpentersville, and Dundee, just to name a few. Because ComEd is an electric utility only delivering electricity, consumers may reduce electric costs by choosing an independent electric supplier such as Santanna Energy Services. Electric suppliers may offer better rates or different programs for your electricity compared to ComEd.
ComEd Electric Rates and Alternatives
ComEd is an electric utility, which delivers electricity to your home or business and services the power lines. When you buy electricity from them, they charge you their price for electricity running through their wires and into your home. Thanks to the deregulation of electric utilities throughout the nation, homeowners and business owners have the power to choose an independent electric supplier that uses the same physical facilities as you always had.
The Customer Choice program through ComEd, gives you the choice to shop and compare rates to other energy suppliers. When you depend on a single utility to provide you with both your electric supply and delivery services, you are often subject to fluctuating prices that can go up when you least expect it. Santanna Energy Services is a certified supplier for ComEd and a Certified Alternative Retail Electric Supplier for Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC). Visit the Citizens Utility Board on information about alternative energy suppliers.
Fortunately, when you choose an independent electricity supplier such as Santanna Energy Services, you can lock in a low electricity rate. With Santanna energy’s Fixed Price Security Plan, you can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that your electric rates will never increase unexpectedly for the duration of the contract. This type of price security is not normally available to ComEd customers and Santanna’s prices are often lower compared to the rates you would normally get. Just grab your last electric bill to determine if Santanna is a better choice for you. Your choice is risk free as you continue to be billed through ComEd and even if you do not renew a contract with Santanna, you can switch your electric supply back.

Santanna Energy Services and ComEd
At Santanna Energy Services, we focus on obtaining the best electricity prices for you and delivering them through your local utility. ComEd cannot legally make a profit on the electric commodity they supply, and therefore they have no incentive to supply electricity at the best price. Going with an independent energy supplier means that you have the power to choose the best rate. Currently, when you sign up with Santanna, you receive a fixed electric rate for 12 months.
