Illinois is Leading the Nation in Saving Money on Energy

Illinois is a national leader in electricity-aggregation programs. Hundreds of communities throughout the state have established group purchasing through Municipal Electricity Choice Aggregation. Through these programs, also called Community Energy Aggregation (CEA), electricity consumers save a significant amount of money.

In addition to saving on electric bills, Illinois households and businesses that work with Good Energy reap these benefits:

  • Electricity price stability
  • Choice of using up to 100 percent renewable energy
  • In-state Good Energy call center
  • Savings remain in local communities

Illinois Chooses Renewables with Good Energy 
Illinois not only leads the nation in Community Energy Aggregation but has also worked extensively with Good Energy to purchase renewable power. Among states in which CEA legislation has passed, Illinois has the greatest number of communities using renewables. Renewable-energy purchases on this scale offset millions of tons of carbon emissions from coal- and oil-fired power plants. Renewable-energy purchasing also spurs increased investment and innovation in the energy sector.
