ComEd customers may see a slight decline in their electric bills this month because of a reduction in the utility’s cost of supplying power.
Chicago-area households with an average $82 monthly electric bill are expected to see their rates drop $1.30 per bill.
That’s because the decline in supply charges would more than offset a $155.6 million rate hike that the Illinois Commerce Commission granted ComEd on May 24, said ComEd spokeswoman Alicia Zatkowski.
ComEd, which is awaiting Gov. Quinn’s action on legislation that would guarantee the utility a certain profit margin under a shortened review timetable, told the ICC on Thursday that it is prepared for summer spikes in power use.
ComEd offers programs to help consumers keep up with the latest summer energy news and outages, including:
