CHICAGO (WIFR) -- ComEd says residential customers will receive a $14 credit on their October bills thanks to an energy saving program.
The Future Energy Jobs Act (FEJA), an energy legislation that passed last year to help pivot Illinois to the new clean economy, is enabling the savings. The credit which was requested by ComEd and approved by Illinois Commerce Commission is the result of the new Energy Efficiency funding mechanism established by FEJA.
The new Energy Efficiency Plan starting in 2018-2022 will create more than $4 billion in consumer savings.
They advise that another way to save is by upgrading your insulation and switching to a smart thermostat.
ComEd says they also offer bill-payment assistance programs for customers who are experiencing a hardship.
