Deregulation in Illinois
This is a sizeable and sophisticated energy market, consisting of more than 95 percent of the load in Illinois.
What happens when you choose a new commercial electricity supplier?
- The new supplier notifies the old supplier and utility that you have changed suppliers.
- The new supplier transmits utility account information to the utility in order to enroll you as a customer.
- The utility confirms, by letter to you, of your new supplier selection and the date your new service begins.
- The actual change of supplier occurs on the meter reading date following a successful enrollment.
