Joliet energy deregulation

Illinois deregulation began in 1997. It was a move that had its proponents and its detractors, but with $37 billion in customer savings to show for it, there’s no questioning the financial benefits of deregulation for the state.

From the consumer’s perspective, deregulating the energy market meant that people could research plans and pick energy providers based on their individual merits. With companies now competing with each other for customers, prices went down and individual households were able to save. Put simply, energy choice in Joliet is continuing to work for the better.

Joliet utility companies & energy providers

Deregulation's impact on the energy industry can't be understated. Previously, everything from energy transmission to sales was handled by a single utility company. Today, the same utility companies distribute and transmit energy, but the selling is done by the various energy providers who are setting the prices.

The major utility company in Joliet is Commonwealth Edison. While Com Ed handles the transmission and distribution of energy, consumers have the final say as to who supplies the energy. By partnering with Champion Energy Services, Spark Energy and Direct Energy, Choose Energy helps match customers with the best energy suppliers in Joliet.

Joliet renewable electricity

With green energy accounting for just under five percent of the state’s energy capacity, it’s clear that renewable energy is still gathering momentum here. In fact, Illinois is expecting to see an increase of green energy jobs in the coming years.

In the meantime, consumers who are interested in sustainable electricity are in luck. Choose Energy’s partnership with AEP Energy means that renewable energy in Joliet is viable option.
