Over 150,000 ComEd Electric Customers Have Switched to Alternative Suppliers

More than 150,000 residential customers of Illinois electric company Commonwealth Edison Co. (ComEd), the state’s largest public utility, have switched to alternative electric suppliers and no longer buy their electricity from their utility.

According to the latest statistics from the Illinois Commerce Commission, the state’s public utility regulator, 158,511 residential customers in the ComEd service area had switched to an alternative electric supplier and completed at least one billing cycle as of Oct. 30.

The number represented a sharp increase of more than 50,000 from the 104,984 that had switched from the utility at the end of September, during which nearly 24,000 ComEd electric customers switched to alternative suppliers.

Almost twice as many ComEd customers switched to alternative suppliers during the two month period from September to October as had switched during the period since deregulation began until the end of August.

Energy Choice Matters notes that the actual number of customers who have switched from ComEd is likely higher as the data did not count enrollments completed by Oct. 30 that had yet to be billed at least once.
