Champaign energy deregulation

In 1997, legislators in Illinois decided to pursue energy deregulation in Champaign, along with the rest of the state. Deregulation gives Champaign consumers more energy choice. Energy for industrial and commercial energy was deregulated first while residential and small business customers followed over the next several years. Because of these changes, consumers now have the ability to choose among various natural gas and electricity providers and shop for the best options according to rates, the sustainability practices of the company, and other variables. Although one utility company in Champaign generally handles the delivery and transmission of energy, different energy providers create competition in the marketplace.
