Customers can take advantage of energy efficiency offerings to save on cold-weather energy costs
CHICAGO (Nov. 7, 2019) – Whether winter brings ice storms, blizzard or another polar vortex, ComEd has been hard at work to ensure the power grid is ready to reliably meet the energy needs of customers in northern Illinois and Chicago all winter long.
ComEd continued its work to create a smart and resilient grid in 2019, improving reliability for customers and building smart infrastructure for the future. By installing advanced technology – including tree-resistant cables and more than 3,500 smart switches since 2012 that reroute power around problem areas – ComEd has prevented more than 13 million interruptions to customers' service.
"The work we've done to modernize the grid is essential to meeting the increased energy needs of families and businesses during the coldest months of the year," said Terry Donnelly, ComEd president and COO. "At the same time, we want to give our customers the power to save money and energy during the winter season through our energy efficiency program."
The ComEd Energy Efficiency Program has empowered customers to save more than $4 billion since 2008. For more information on ways customers can save money and energy, visit ComEd.com/WaysToSave.
