What is the Illinois Commerce Commission?

The Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC) plays an important role in energy choice. It facilitates competitive supplier choices, certifies that competitive electricity suppliers have met strict requirements for doing business in Illinois, and hosts Plug In Illinois, a tool that consumers can use to compare electricity options.

Current Price to Compare IL Rates

Utility Company Price per kwh
Ameren Electric 6.167¢ / kwh
Commonwealth Edison 7.195¢ / kwh

Since 2002, more than 3.1 million households and over 250,000 businesses in Illinois have taken advantage of energy choice. Consumers from large industrial plants to residential households located in the Ameren Illinois and ComEd service areas have the ability to shop around for their electricity supply.
