Illinois Residential Energy Plans
Exercise your right to choose a retail electricity supplier!
Until 1997, Illinois residents paid some of the highest electricity rates in the country. At the time, the American Illinois Utilities and Commonwealth Edison Company held a monopoly over the energy market. These utilities controlled pricing and could increase customer rates without facing competition from local providers.
In 1997 Illinois began deregulating the market after state lawmakers passed “The Illinois Electric Service Customer Choice and The Rate Relief Law.” Today residents can choose the type of plan and energy they want from private energy services companies. In 2006, Illinois further promoted private competition by offering temporary discount programs and establishing the Office of Retail Market Development. Competitive energy suppliers now serve countless Illinois households looking to manage their budgets through affordable fixed rate terms.
Why Switch to Deregulated Energy?
Deregulated energy is great news for eligible Illinois residents who want more control over their monthly budgets. Before deregulation, two utilities powered the state and could spontaneously raise rates due to factors such as extreme weather. Luckily as a Illinois resident, you can choose a trusted energy service company with a fixed rate and term that fits your budget.
Liberty Power is a private energy service supplier that understands Illinois residents want to be in control of their monthly energy bill. Residents should not have to worry about local utilities spiking rates at times when they need it the most. We believe when customers are informed, they can make better choices about energy spending.
Along with a fixed rate, Liberty Power offers Illinois residents a friendly, informed and available customer service team to explain every step in the process of energy independence.
