When an existing customer changes its Federal Employer Identification Number (“TAX ID”), ComEd creates a new account for the new entity with the new TAX ID. For those customers supplied by a RES, the RES supply service must be reinstated on the new account if the customer wishes to continue supply service with the RES. In order to avoid the discontinuance of RES supply service for the new customer in this circumstance, ComEd provides a new business process for the RES serving the predecessor customer. To begin this process, complete the attached authorization form and submit it to ESSD via email or fax.

To begin the process of placing customers on Rider RMUD, please contact your ESSD Account Manager. A RES must complete the following steps before submitting customers under Rider RMUD to ComEd via the EDI protocol:
Customers are enrolled under the provisions of Rider RMUD utilizing the standard switching rules. DASRs submitted for enrollment under the Rider or a change request DASR to place the account on Rider RMUD will become effective on the next meter reading date that is at least 18 days from the successful submittal by the RES.

Please see the RES Handbook for further details on this process.
Retail customers, which includes both residential and non-residential customers, may designate a third-party, known as the General Account Agent (GAA). A GAA would receive the customer's bills and notices and handles requests on behalf of the customer in accordance with ComEd tariffs.
MSPs are providers of metering service certified by the Illinois Commerce Commission under the provisions of 83 Illinois Administrative Code Part 460. For more information, please contact the Electric Supplier Services Department.
Integrated Distribution Company (IDC) rules provide that in times of an emergency, ComEd may take any actions necessary to protect the public health and safety or electric system integrity and reliability. If under non-emergency situations such actions would constitute violations of the IDC rules, ComEd is to file written reports with the Illinois Commerce Commission and publicly post such reports.
ComEd's load profiles are based on average historical hourly load data in kWh, collected from a statistical sample of the segment to be profiled. From the sample data, an average profile for each delivery service class is created for each hour in the year. The sample data used to compute these averages are also utilized in the PJM 60-day reconciliation process.
The link below contains historical hourly load data from April 1, 2009 CST and is updated on a monthly basis. The data are in an excel format.
