Waukegan energy deregulation

Illinois began phasing in deregulation in 1997, completing the process in 2007. Prior to energy deregulation, a single utility company in Waukegan was responsible for supplying electricity, delivering electricity, collecting payment, and handling sales. Because this company held a monopoly, it could set artificially high prices.

With deregulation, commercial and residential consumers in Waukegan now have more choices. While the utility still handles the transmission and delivery of energy, customers can now choose from a variety of energy suppliers who offer a range of different energy plans.
